A day after US President Barack Obama’s state of the union address, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov slammed Washington for embarking on a path of confrontation with Moscow.

“Following the United States’ actions, a mood of confrontation has prevailed in the North Atlantic alliance. It has made an absolutely politicized decision on suspending cooperation on military and civilian matters. Effectively, all the projects have been frozen,” Lavrov said in an annual press conference in Moscow on Wednesday.

“This is not Russia’s choice and Moscow does not want and would not allow a new Cold War,” the minister stressed.

Lavrov said Russia and the US “carry great responsibility” in the “world arena” and must work together.
