But I believe when taken some important international decisions, it would be nice that they were somehow justified, "- said the former MP.

At the same time, according to Ponomarev, Washington now lives is another problem - the conflict with North Korea.

"Now to him (Donald Trump - Ed.) Behavior is clear that during the visit of Chinese leader to Florida they are behind closed doors talked this subject, and China will at least keep the neutrality, if not help in this case," - concluded Russian politician.
