The chairman of the Senate's Homeland Security Committee Republican Sen. Ron Johnson urged Washington to cooperate with Russia to have better relations
"I wish Russia were no more than a friendly rival. But unfortunately, they're an unfriendly adversary. And it's been their aggression, their provocations, that have really resulted in a relationship that is not healthy for the world, for world peace," NBC cited the senator as saying.
"Long-term, we have got to have better relations with Russia. We just do. We, as a world, as the western democracies, have got to show greater strength and resolve," he added in an exclusive interview on "Meet The Press."
