‘Emotion mustn’t override reason’: Churkin questions Trump’s tensions with Iran & China

Moscow hopes the tensions between the new White House administration, Iran and China will not result in any serious international showdown, the Russian envoy to the UN told RT, adding that the current rhetoric appears to be an emotional response to reality.

Ambassador Vitaly Churkin, Russia’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations, spoke to RT’s Alexey Yaroshevsky ahead of the planned meeting between the newly-confirmed US Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.
