Lavrov: Trump confirms plans to improve ties with Moscow
Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov recalled that US President Donald Trump earlier called for improving ties with Russia and confirmed that Moscow is ready for this.
Russia’s top diplomat commented on the words of US National Security Adviser Herbert McMaster that it was time to have "tough discussions with Russia" on its steps in Syria.
"We will rely on what President Donald Trump has once again confirmed, rather than on the words of his adviser," TASS cited Lavrov as saying.
Trump "confirmed that he seeks to improve relations with Russia and we are also ready for this," the minister said.
