The United States government believes that Uruguay should reconsider its “trade rapprochement” with Russia, according to statements made by David MacKean, the Director of Policy Planning at the U.S. State Department, in an interview with the weekly publication Búsqueda during a visit to Uruguay.

“We believe that all nations should be concerned over the violation of territorial integrity in Crimea as well as in eastern Ukraine,” said MacKean. He would like the countries of the region to “rethink” the strengthening of relations with Russia.
