Zakharova on Lavrov's "pragmatic and constructive" meetings in Washington
Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov's talks with U.S. President Donald Trump and U.S. Secretary of State Michael Pompeo were pragmatic and constructive, Russian Foreign Ministry's official spokeswoman Maria Zakharova told Rossiya-1 TV channel.
According to the diplomat, the sides discussed very specific topics on which they have already established dialogue — Syria, Afghanistan, and so on. "Those are issues on which progress needs to be mode, and movement should only be forward, not backward or sideways — issues of security, disarmament, strategic stability and so on," TASS cited Zakharova as saying.
On December 10, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov made an official visit to the United States, where he met with Pompeo and Trump.
