Washington will not force Moscow to change its principled position on a number of issues using pressure, Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov told TASS on Wednesday.
"The Americans should not make a mistake thinking that through some kind of pressure or some verbal techniques they can change our principled position on well-known subjects," he said.
Ryabkov stressed that the Russian delegation is ready to discuss all topics at the summit in Geneva. "We will surely face a situation that has already been announced by the Americans on well-known topics - both regional and our internal ones — but we are ready for this. The president spoke quite clearly about this. We are not shying away from discussing any topics. There is no such topic that we would not be ready to discuss," he said.
Deputy Foreign Minister noted that Moscow was able to achieve agreement on absolutely all issues of interest for the summit agenda.
