McCain: "reset" policy has suffered a complete failure

U.S. Senator, Republican John McCain believes that President Barack Obama initiated the policy of "reset" in relations with Russia was unsuccessful. His world, he argues the current position RF on Syria — Our homeland does not agree to renounce weapons supplies to the regime of Bashar al-Assad.

"I think it was a totally bad policy. We litsezreem ways RF in Georgia, litsezreem that supply tool Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad, who is killing people en masse own country. In the public Our homeland is becoming increasingly isolated. I believe that the method acts RF did not improve, however, it became worse, "- said in an interview DELFI McCain.

— The world is not because of the passions subside applets uranium enrichment in Iran is suspected that Tehran is seeking to develop nuclear weapons. Israel rejects the ability to strike at Iran's nuclear projects. Can the United States to prevent Israel or somehow convince Tel Aviv did not decide military action?

— I do not think the U.S. can prevent Israel from doing anything, because it is a sovereign government, even though our relationship with Israel is very cramped. I only wish that between the U.S. and Israel had more co-ordination, for example, that Washington and Tel Aviv have agreed on a certain "red line" that Iran could not jump. For example, to what extent justified by the enrichment of uranium. I think that the U.S. and Israel need to better coordinate their policies towards Iran.

— I wanted to ask you to express your attitude to the policy announced by Obama "reset" in relations with Russia. Has it been a success, according to your beliefs?

— I think it was totally bad policy. We litsezreem ways RF in Georgia, litsezreem that supply tool Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad, who is killing people en masse own country. In the public Our homeland is becoming increasingly isolated. I believe that the method of the acts of the Russian Federation has not improved, however, was terrible.

— Would you support stricter U.S. policy towards Russia?

— I wish that the Congress had adopted legal act called us "Magnitsky law." It is named in honor of lawyer Sergei Magnitsky, who was killed in a Russian jail. This legal act establishes certain sanctions (freezing of accounts, the suspension of the acts of visas — DELFI) in respect of the persons responsible for the murder of Magnitsky, including the arbitrators. I think that the Russians should learn this lesson: we are against the order to kill people in jail. We must somehow respond.

Do we want good-quality relations with Russia? Naturally, we wish. We are committed to good relations with all countries, but the behavior of Vladimir Putin, in particular in the case of Syria, is incompatible with responsible leadership in the world.
