Russian, US Foreign Ministers Discuss Bilateral Tensions

Russian, US Foreign Ministers Discuss Bilateral Tensions

"I heard that North Korean foreign minister made a very tough statement on behalf of his country rejecting the UN Security Council resolution and calling it unjust", the Russian foregn minister said.

As Russian Foreign Ministry reports, during their meeting Lavrov and Tillerson discussed the situation concerning Russian-US relations, with Mr Lavrov noting that the US decision to impose new sanctions on Russia is the latest in a series of unfriendly steps that could jeopardise global stability and deals a powerful blow to prospects for bilateral cooperation. Lavrov did not disclose the exact date of the expected conference.

The sanctions, which passed both houses of Congress by overwhelming majorities despite Trump's objections, in part target the Russian energy sector, with new limits on US investment in Russian companies.

Russian Federation has consistently maintained that it did not interfere in the election.

"We expect that through reasonable approach of all actors, including the United States, South Korea and Japan, we could find a decision that would satisfy all parties", Lavrov told reporters.

Tillerson said Monday that he discussed Moscow's threat to expel USA diplomats with Lavrov but has not yet determined an official response to the demands. Discussions are also continuing on expanding the U.S.

"We will certainly continue dialogue with our North Korean neighbors", the foreign minister said. "There's no alternative to that".

That failure is likely to add to Russia's view that the Trump Administration is simply powerless to improve relations even when they want to, and that the pervasive anti-Russia sentiment within the US Congress will likely preclude any real rapprochement for the time being.

Turkey, Russia and Iran are working on a mechanism of de-escalation zones in Syria involving the US and respective zones assigned to each country.

"Our relationship with Russian Federation is at an all-time & very risky low".

The memorandum on the establishment of four de-escalation zones in Syria was signed in Astana in May, with Russia, Iran and Turkey acting as the guarantors of the ceasefire regime. He predicted "it will be difficult" to hammer out the details but that compromise can be reached if all parties - including the USA - use their influence in Syria to persuade armed groups there to comply.

But between Trump's praise for Russian President Vladimir Putin and his skepticism of the USA intelligence community's finding that Russia interfered in the US election, the Republican-controlled Congress took extraordinary measures to curtail the power of a president from their own party.

Russian Federation has denied seeking to sway the US election and Trump has denied any collusion.

United States intelligence agencies believe the Kremlin tried to help Donald Trump.

Neither Tillerson nor Lavrov responded to a shouted question about how the new U.S. penalties might affect their discussions. "The Russians have indicated some willingness to begin to talk with us about the way forward on Ukraine".

Word that United States special representative Kurt Volker plans to visit the Russian capital was the latest sign that Washington is giving fresh attention to resolving the Ukraine conflict.

Heightened tension is also tied to a USA investigation into links between members of Trump's campaign team and Russian officials.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said he had a lengthy meeting with the US Secretary of State during which he explained Tillerson about Moscow's counter-measures in response to U.S sanctions.
