USA expresses willingness to cooperate with Russian Federation

Russia's Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov talks to US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson during a G20 meeting of foreign ministers in Bonn, Germany on February 16, 2017.

White House spokeswoman Lindsay Walters says Monday that Trump had an hour-long call with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Chief of Staff John Kelly.

More than one week after President Vladimir Putin announced he will expel 755 us diplomats and workers and confiscate two State Dept. properties in Russia, President Donald Trump has not even acknowledged the attack on America and its emissaries.

Since President Donald Trump signed the sanctions bill last week, after Congress forced his hand, the mood in Moscow has become a mixture of acerbic sarcasm against Washington and nationalistic chest-beating.

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has said that the United States are willing to work with Russian Federation and it is pointless to cut off the ties over their disagreements.

Asked how the USA can support the Philippine government in its fight against ISIS without endorsing human rights abuses in President Rodrigo Duterte's bloody crackdown on drugs, Tillerson said there was no conflict.

"I asked several clarifying questions, just to describe the thinking behind that diplomatic note that we received, but I told them we would respond by September 1", he said, referring to Moscow's deadline to shrink the mission.

Tillerson in his comments to reporters said Russian Federation is showing "some willingness" to start discussing a resolution to the Ukraine crisis.

It's a critique that has been bolstered by Trump's praise for Russian President Vladimir Putinand his skepticism about the finding of the intelligence community that Russia meddled in the 2016 election to hurt Hillary Clinton's campaign and boost his. "We believe that this is the problem we must go through together", Lavrov said.

Lavrov cited upcoming talks involving Russia, Iran and Turkey about how to ensure the truce in the last safe zone to be established, around the north-western city of Idlib.

While Tillerson declined to detail what a USA response could look like, he said that he questioned Lavrov extensively on the issue. The sanctions are partly aimed at Russia's energy sector, imposing new boundaries on U.S. investment in oil companies.

Russian Federation also closed a US recreational retreat on the outskirts of Moscow.

"Naturally, such actions, including the illegal retention of our diplomatic property since December of previous year, could not remain unanswered, and won't be in the future". At the same time, we are ready to normalise relations if Washington abandons its confrontational line.

If the two leaders discussed those or other US concerns about Duterte's government, they didn't do so in public.

Ryabkov and Shannon met on may 8 in NY and on July 17 in Washington through the diplomatic channel between Russian Federation and the United States.

"However, North Korean representatives reacted in the same manner to all previously passed resolutions of the UN Security Council".

He said he met Mr Lavrov to "help them understand how serious this incident had been and how seriously it damaged the relationship".
