This is what he told during his speech in the New-York office of Reuters.

 

 

On top of that, he says this may happen virtually overnight and the first wakeup calls are already here. For instance, Russia and China are already cooperating in terms of currency swaps.  He urged the U.S. authorities to pay attention to the fact that the so-called BRICS members are acting and do not want to want when the USA tells them what to do. This is confirmed by the latest BRICS summit in Russia. It seems that Putin is initiating a dialog to join forces when fighting the crisis. According to Mr. Kerry, it is important to keep in mind that all that is happening amid the current global market, which is changing since the rivalry never ends and most people are fed up with the system established after World War II.
