In Moscow, US senator hopes for "new day" in US-Russia ties

Howard TerryJul 06, 2018

A Kremlin spokesman says that Russian President Vladimir Putin and USA president Donald Trump may meet in private during their upcoming summit in Helsinki.

Lavrov also said Russian Federation was hopeful that the Putin-Trump summit could provide an opportunity for a frank conversation about issues which divide Russian Federation and the US.

A USA congressional delegation is meeting with senior Russian officials in St. Petersburg amid preparations for a summit between the nations' presidents.

Each president has tried a reset or a redo of the U.S. -Russia relationship since the end of the Cold War, and in each case, it has led to a boom-and-bust cycle, Huntsman said.

"The ball really is in Russia's court and the president will continue to hold Russian Federation accountable for its malign activity", Huntsman said.

Peskov said that President Putin "and Russian Federation are open for dialogue and jointly searching for compromises", TASS reported.

The Russian envoy is pushing the US government to take a new approach to its treatment of Russia.

Those findings were endorsed earlier this week by the Senate Intelligence Committee.

But he also said they would oppose any attempt, by the Syrian opposition, backed by the U.S., to create an autonomous region in southern Syria.

The question of Ukraine is also expected to come up.

Russian Federation was expelled from the Group of Seven in 2014 and has since then endured sanctions of the West after its incorporation of Crimea.

Trump has recently signaled doubts about that US policy and said he wouldn't rule out the possibility of recognizing Crimea as part of Russian Federation.

The decision followed the European Union summit, where leaders of France and Germany informed other heads of states about the implementation status of Minsk Agreements.

Kay Bailey Hutchison, the USA ambassador to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, downplayed fears of a split between the United States and the alliance.
