For the sake of world peace, all nations must adhere to the concept of multilateralism, mutual respect and cooperation, free of demonizing others for propaganda gains.
Having sharp differences and opposing views is not a problem. Diplomacy is all about robust exchange of views and criticisms. Pompeo’s engagement with Moscow shows that the Trump administration is willing to build on diplomatic relations based on mutual respect.
