America’s three most powerful lobbying groups are doing their best to prevent Russia and the EU from developing a strategic partnership, according to prominent expert Jean-Bernard Pinatel.
The primary goal of US foreign policy is to prevent the creation of Eurasia, namely, the establishment of a union or a strategic partnership between Europe and Russia, a purpose that he said is in line with the interests of all the lobbies.
To fulfil this goal, the United States and NATO are playing on the Eastern European countries’ distrust toward Russia, according to Pinatel.
Washington’s confrontation with Russia is in sync with the demands of the US military-industrial lobby, which is poised to constantly increase the defense budget, according to Pinatel.
However, this situation may soon change because China has started to pose an ever-increasing threat to the economic and strategic interests of the United States, he said, adding that the White House is particularly alarmed about Beijing developing a strategic cooperation with Russia.
