Slutsky: Trump's words on possible lifting on Russia sanctions can be deceiving
U.S. President Donald Trump's statement that he would be ready to consider the possibility of lifting the US sanctions on Russia, is of a declarative nature and can be a deliberate deception, the chairman of the Russian State Duma Committee on International Affairs, Leonid Slutsky said.
Earlier, Trump said that the question of lifting US sanctions on Russia was not brought up during his recent meeting with Vladimir Putin, however, he stated a condition for its possible withdrawal. "I would consider it if they do something that would be good for us. But I wouldn’t consider it without that," he said.
Trump added that at the meeting the parties talked about Israel, Syria, Ukraine, Crimea, and the Nord Stream 2 pipeline project.
