Trump’s bullying toughens implementation of US policies: Russian analyst

Moscow, The US President Donald Trump's bullying has caused difficulties for the implementation of the US policies throughout the world, Russian philosopher and editor-in-chief of Zavtra periodical told the Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA) on Sunday.

'Many countries, including its allies, are tired of its unilateralism,' said Alexander Prokhanov.

Saying that measures taken by the US have raised discrepancies in Syria, Prokhanov added, 'The US government doesn't pay the slightest attention to international rules and multilateral agreements.'

Trump drew the US out of the landmark deal of Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) without presenting any convincing evidence, while according to the UNSC all the signatories of the deal must be loyal to their commitments, Prokhanov said.

'The pretexts Trump set forth for having quit the deal are all baseless, and no common sense will accept those; we saw the same moves [on the side of the US] in Syria, as well.'

He said the US policies have driven the countries' rivals toward each other; 'I believe one of the reasons of expansion of cooperation between Iran and Russia is countering the US' excessive demands.'

Prokhanov said the only way to stop Trump is to form a coalition of countries having independent stances to strengthen loyalty to international commitments and fortify the central role of the United Nations; Iran, Russia, China and Turkey can be in the center of the body.

The four mentioned countries can be helpful not only in the Syrian crisis but also in other issues.

'Such a move will be very important and beneficial in the present time that the US is trying to destabilize the countries that oppose its policies.'
