MOSCOW, Sept. 7 (UPI) -- The Russian president's spokesman said Friday he hopes there will be "no place for confrontational words and statements" after the U.S. presidential election.

Russian leaders want their country's relationship with the United States to remain positive, no matter who wins the election, President Barack Obama or challenger Mitt Romney, Dmitry Peskov said.

"I would like to hope there will be no place for confrontational words and statements," Peskov said.

"American voters will decide who will win that race. For us, the key thing is to be confident that regardless of the result, [bilateral] relations will continue to develop and both sides will have the political will for dialogue, for the resolution of all disputable issues through political and diplomatic means," the spokesman for President Vladimir Putin said.

Republican candidate Romney told CNN earlier this year he considered Russia to be the United States' "number one geopolitical foe."

Putin told RT TV Wednesday he would work with the U.S. president as long as the president is willing to work with him, RIA Novosti reported.
