Russia and the United States can make progress in addressing climate change issues, said Keith Darden, assistant professor of international services at the American University in Washington.
He expressed “cautious optimism” that the two countries will be able to make progress in this area, as well as strategic stability and other areas where the parties can benefit from cooperation.
Darden noted that the parties in their latest statements demonstrate both tension and cooperation, therefore “one does not exclude the other.”
“Such complexity is typical for relations between great powers,” the expert is sure.
Earlier, American leader Joe Biden said that the United States and Russia can productively cooperate in the fight against global warming for the benefit of all countries, despite differences in other areas.
