In a media briefing, reporters asked Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova to comment on the recent statement by US President Barack Obama:
"when it comes to every important international issue, people of the world do not look to Beijing or Moscow to lead -- they call us."
"If the world calls Washington first, what happens next is that Washington calls Moscow" said Zakharova.
