"The U.S. has a pretty solid history and tradition of basing decisions on national interests on the assessments of the threats and challenges they are facing as a country. We hope that we will be able to bring our arguments to the new admin and be heard," Klympush-Tsyntsadze said.
She added that he himself, Donald Trump will be representing the Republican Party that has a pretty clear tradition of a foreign security policy alliance that will also streamline the decisions that will be made by the new administration.
"I think very quickly and very clearly there will be understanding that Russia has to be deterred in its attempts to ruin the world order that we have built all together the hard way after the Second World War," the vice premier remarked.
In her opinion, any pro-Russian policy leanings by Trump will face pro-NATO, anti-Russian resistance from congressional Republicans and Democrats and the broader Republican Party.
