Kosachyov sees no signs of Russia's isolation at UNGA session

MOSCOW. Sept 22 (Interfax) - No signs of Russia's isolation have been visible at the ongoing UN General Assembly session, Konstantin Kosachyov, the head of the Russian Federation Council Foreign Affairs Committee, said at a press conference in Moscow on Friday.

"There has not been the slightest sign of Russia's isolation at the General Assembly session. The Russian delegation has held between 10 and 15 meetings a day," Kosachyov said.

"Russia's position in the international community has grown stronger," he said.

Kosachyov also commented on U.S. President Donald Trump's speech at the assembly session.

"President Donald Trump's speech has evoked different judgments and emotions. Some of his remarks were shocking, like his readiness to destroy North Korea and withdraw from the Iran deal, or his insulting remarks about Cuba, Venezuela, and other countries. This negated his remarks on respecting sovereignty," Kosachyov said.
