Russia, China Won’t Play by Western Rules, Says Lavrov

Friday 18 September 2020

MOSCOW (TASS) — Ideas that Russia and China will play by sets of Western rules under any circumstances are deeply flawed, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said in an interview with New York-based international Russian-language RTVI channel.

Lavrov noted:

I was reading our political scientists who are well known in the West. The following idea is becoming louder and more pronounced: it is time to stop applying Western metrics to our actions and stop trying to be liked by the West at any cost. These are very reputable people and a rather serious statement. It is clear to me that the West is wittingly or unwittingly pushing us towards this analysis. It is likely to be done unwittingly.

However, it is a big mistake to think that Russia will play by Western rules in any case, just like thinking this in terms of China.
