Hillary Clinton, the U.S. secretary of state, said in Moscow on October 13 that despite disagreements, including over Georgia, the United States and Russia “are going to continue to work in every other area where we do agree.”
“We will continue to have disagreements,” she said at a joint news conference with Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.
“But we are planting those disagreements in a much broader field of cooperation, and hopefully, we are enriching the earth in which this cooperation can take root.”
“We will not see eye-to-eye on Georgia, for example. We just have a difference of opinion. We have made it clear that we will not recognize South Ossetia and Abkhazia,” Clinton added.
