Trump, Putin to Meet in July, Russian State Media Says

Kayla Schwartz | 15 May, 2017, 04:45

Prior to the meeting with Trump, Klimkin held talks with U.S. Vice President Michael Pence.

Russian Federation backs Syrian regime leader Bashar al Assad in the civil war. Trump on Tuesday abruptly fired FBI Director James Comey, ousting the nation's top law enforcement official in the midst of the bureau's investigation into Trump's ties with Russian Federation. When asked during the photo- opt if the termination had any affect with Wednesday's meeting with Lavrov, Mr. Trump responded, "not at all".

Relations deteriorated between the United States and Russia after US air strikes against a Syrian airfield in response to a chemical weapons attack that Washington blamed on Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, a Russian ally.

Peskov said Russian Federation stands ready to move as far forward on its diplomatic agenda with the United States as Washington is willing.

In the aftermath of Comey's termination at the FBI both President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin have distanced Russia and the bureau's investigation into Russian meddling in the election from Comey's departure.

Lavrov will be coming to the American capital with a Russian plan to end the violence, after hashing out an agreement with Iran and Turkey last week.

Sean Spicer won't deny that Trump is secretly recording White House conversations
Wallace, Mediaite noted , "has spent the better part of the past four decades reporting on Washington". Trump tweeted about half an hour after his tweet targeting Comey.

Donald Trump's White House takeover has not brought the former Cold War adversaries closer to seeing eye to eye - and in early April the U.S. even launched direct military action against the Syrian regime in retaliation for a chemical attack for which it was blamed.

It focuses on the creation of four de-escalation zones.

After Tillerson visited Putin and Lavrov in Moscow on April 12, Trump said flatly, "Right now we're not getting along with Russian Federation at all".

Russian Federation and Ukraine have been in conflict since 2014, and Russia's annexation of Crimea has been a major point of contention between Washington and Moscow.

Tillerson and Lavrov's meeting in Alaska comes 150 years after Washington purchased the USA state from Moscow.
