SOCHI, October 24 (RIA Novosti) - The winners in the Cold War seem to be bent on reshaping the world so that it could better accommodate their own needs, Russian President Vladimir Putin said Friday in a comment on US foreign policy.
"It looks like the so-called 'winners' of the Cold War are determined to have it all and reshape the world into a place that could better serve their interests alone," Vladimir Putin said at the 11th conference of the Valdai Discussion Forum in the Russian city of Sochi.
"The existing system of international relations, international laws, the system of checks and balances have been therefore declared useless, obsolete and ready to be torn down," the Russian president stated.
The period of the Cold War is over, but the peace has never been made, Russian President Vladimir Putin said.
“The ‘Cold War’ is over. But it did not end with peace. [Neither did it end with] a transparent and clear agreement on new rules and standards,” Putin said.
