Russia and the United States walked a long way to the present partnership
Russia and the United States walked a long way to the present partnership, that rather often was a path of thorns, which gives all the more grounds to value, develop and strengthen this partnership - that was the leitmotif of a gala reception held at the Russian embassy in Washington on Tuesday. The gala ceremony at the embassy heralded the celebrations of the 200th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Russia and the United States - the event that both countries on their mutual decision will celebrate throughout the year although actually, the anniversary is due in December. Russian ambassador Yuri Ushakov told the guests that the two countries had everything, except "hot war" in the history of bilateral relations." All of us should be grateful for that because the very existence of the civilization was under threat," Ushakov said. As for the present- day partnership between the two countries, its undying symbol is the telephone conversation between Russian President Vladimir Putin and US President George Bush after the September 11, 2001 terrorist act of horror when the Russian president offered "a helping hand to the United States," Ushakov said. US Under Secretary of State for political affairs Nicholas Burns praised a personal role played by the two presidents in the development of bilateral relations and underlined crucial importance of the Soviet people’ s contribution to the victory over fascism. America has a great respect and is grateful to its ally, Burns said. Burns hoped that Russia and the United States by joint efforts would manage to strengthen peace and stability all over the world. America will always come out for freedom and democracy in Russia, for sovereignty and independence of each European country, Burns said.
