– Why are our partners nervous? Because if Russia joins, first of all, it will always have its voice, we will not allow ourselves to be manipulated, but our American friends must not even think about it – said Putin.
He said that he spoke about the possibility of considering Russia’s entry into NATO during one of his talks with President Bill Clinton in Moscow, and the Russian leader’s comment, he said, caused nervousness in the American delegation.
Putin said that the United States of America is guilty of creating the terrorist group Al Qaeda.
– Al Qaeda is not the result of our activities. It is the result of the activities of our American friends. It started back at the time of the Soviet war in Afghanistan, when American intelligence agencies supported various strands of Islamic fundamentalism in the fight against Soviet troops in Afghanistan. The Americans themselves created Al Qaeda and Bin Laden – the Russian president pointed out in an interview with the American director Oliver Stone five years ago.
