U.S. to seek continued cooperation with Russia: White House


09:55, December 09, 2011

WASHINGTON, Dec. 8 (Xinhua) -- The White House said on Thursday that the United States will continue to seek opportunities for cooperation with Russia, based on mutual respect and common interests.

In response to Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin's allegation of U.S.' interference in Russian affairs, White House spokesman Jay Carney said that the two countries "have many common interests," and the Obama administration has sought to "develop and nurture those interests."

"Through engagement with the Russian government, we have advanced several of our top security and economic interests," he told reporters at a regular news briefing. "We will continue to seek opportunities for cooperation with Russia, based on mutual respect and those common interests."

"At the same time, we have sought to deepen our engagement with Russian society and to promote universal values," he added. "When rights are violated in Russia, or in any other country, we speak out. We are going to continue to pursue both tracks of engagement in the promotion of our interests and our values."

Early this week, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton expressed "serious concerns" about the State Duma election held in Russia on Sunday, saying the election was "neither free nor fair" and calling for "a full investigation" into "all credible reports of electoral fraud and manipulation."
