“I think there are a lot of components to this question, though, of course, he is so frontal. We have the frontal response might be that we have concluded the corresponding agreement, the agreement with the Americans on conflict prevention. It’s such a straightforward answer to your straightforward question,” said foreign Ministry spokesman.
