Medvedev Accused U.S. Foreign Policy Of “Cynicism” And Being Paranoid

Posted by Info on 03/12/2010

“These leaks are telling: US show the full measure of cynicism in assessments and judgments that prevail in the foreign policy of… the United States,” said Mr. Medvedev at a joint press conference with visiting Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi.
U.S. diplomats described Mr. Medvedev as playing Robin to Prime Minister Vladimir Putin’s Batman, and labelled Russia a “mafia state”.
Russia’s President Dmitry Medvedev said characteristics U.S. officials are given in Russian diplomatic and secret service correspondence are just as critical. “They’d have a whole lot of fun reading them, too.”
Mr. Medvedev ruled out any Russian backlash. “We are not paranoid, and we do not link Russian-American relations with any leaks”

The official report that Mr Berlusconi “and his cronies” have been enabled to make money on multi-million pound energy deals concluded between Italy and Russia.
The two leaders’ close ties were founded on Mr Berlusconi’s admiration of “Putin’s macho, decisive and authoritarian governing style.”
