Normalization in U.S.-Russian relations not to change political situation in world: analyst at French studies institute

Azerbaijan, Baku, July 7 / Trend , E.Ostapenko /

Normalization of relations between the United States and Russia will not assume a global significance and will not change the situation in the world, since today Russia does not play the role it played formerly, Dominic Moisi, analyst on Russian-American relations, said.

"There is a country that is essential for the future of the world, it is not Russia, but it is China," Moisi, founder and senior advisor at the French Institute for International Relations (IFRI),told Trend in a telephone conversation from Paris

Speaking of the growing role of China, Moisi said that the Chinese are soon going to be the number two economy in the world. Russian economy can not compete. As another important aspect of the increasing weight of China in the world, Moisi considers the absence of problems with the aging of population, unlike European countries, including Russia.

"China has still the largest population in the world and it is not being reduced. The population of Russia is reducing strikingly year after year," said Moisi, author of numerous reports on U.S.-Russian relations. 

He said China is not in the same category than Russia. "It is much more important today and the Americans are absolutely aware of that. But at the same time it is important for the United States to have a descent relationship with Russia and not totally antagonistic one," said Moisi. 

Visit of the U.S. President to Moscow on Monday was a continuation of the course to "reload" in U.S.-Russian relations, which was launched last spring at a meeting of heads of foreign departments of the United States and Russia.

As a result of yesterday's negotiations, the Presidents of the United States Barack Obama and Russia Dmitry Medvedev signed a package of documents on missile defense, further reduction of strategic offensive arms, military cooperation, interaction in the nuclear sphere.

The most valuable result of the meeting in Moscow is arms control, Moisi said.

"The agreements signed by the two leaders are significant in the sense that it demonstrates good will of both sides," said Moisi - It shows the willingness to transcend some of detentions and divisions that may exist between the two countries.  

"I am not really optimistic about future relations between the US and Russia, because I don't see the change that I would wish to see in Moscow," Moisi said. He thinks there are certain brackets of the Russian leadership, a sense of one thing to be more than what they are and the realization that they can't.

Russia gives absolute priority to the power of the Russian state by opposition to the disharmonious growth to the Russian society, Moisi considers.

"I would wish to see a greater openness, a greater realization of what new needs of Russian society are, he said. - So, I'm not too optimistic about the future of Russia's relations with the rest of the world in present political circumstances."
