Patrushev: Russia is interested in cooperation with US and Europe on an equal basis

Russia wants to cooperate with the US and European countries but on an equal basis, Russian Federation Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev said in an interview with Rossiiskaya Gazeta.

"The new version of our [national security: ed] strategy has specified clear tasks in the area of the Russian Federation's cooperation with our partners in the CSTO, Eurasian Economic Union, SCO, in Asia-Pacific, Latin America, Africa and the Arctic. We also want to cooperate with the US and European states, but on equal basis," Patrushev said.
