MOSCOW, Dec. 19 (Xinhua) -- The new U.S. national security strategy is imperial in nature, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Tuesday.
"A quick reading of the strategy, especially of those parts that somehow mention our country, on the whole, reveal the imperial character of the document," Peskov told reporters.
"There is a persistent reluctance to renounce the concept of a unipolar world, as well as a rejection of a multipolar world," he said.
However, the spokesman said the document also contained "some modest positive points," including a willingness to cooperate in areas that correspond to U.S. interests.
All relevant departments of the Russian government will thoroughly examine the 68-page long document, he said.
On Monday, the administration of U.S. President Donald Trump published a new version of the country's national security strategy, outlining its worldwide interests, goals, and objectives relevant to U.S. security.
The report referred to Russia and China as "revisionist powers," listing them as "competitors" seeking to alter the status quo that favors the United States.
