Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s answer to a media question on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Buenos Aires, November 30, 2018
Question: What do you think of US President Donald Trump’s behaviour?
Sergey Lavrov: It is not in my place to judge presidents’ behaviour. I assume that Donald Trump, in his characteristic manner, posted a tweet from which the entire world learned the news. I doubt that this step will help in resolving a whole range of important international issues. Of course, love cannot be forced. If the domestic situation and the pressure from Russia-haters such as Ukraine and its sponsors prevent the US President from building a normal relationship with the Russian President, which we have repeatedly supported, we will wait for another opportunity.
