Meeting with Tillerson leaves Lavrov feeling U.S. willing to continue dialogue


Tillerson says the USA has deep differences with Russian Federation including on Ukraine, but that it's not a good idea to "just cut everything off on one single issue".

The United States is shifting responsibility for the North Korean nuclear crisis to other countries rather than taking concrete steps to tackle the issue itself, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov has told Russian news outlet Sputnik. Earlier, Trump had signed a bill overwhelmingly approved by the Congress that imposed new sanctions on Russian Federation.

China and Russian Federation vowed on Sunday to maintain close communications with each other on the Korean Peninsula issue, saying the two countries hold highly consistent attitudes toward it.

The United States and Russian Federation have agreed to continue discussing complex issues on bilateral agenda. He says he won't give a concrete timeframe but that the USA will "know it when we see it".

"I see no conflict - no conflict at all in our helping them with that situation and our views of the human rights concerns we have with respect to how they carry out their counter narcotics activities", Tillerson said. "There's no alternative to that".

Moscow did not respond at that time in a bid to achieve better relations with Washington under Trump.

Election meddling "created serious mistrust between our two countries and that we simply have to find some way to deal with that", said Tillerson, who then offered Moscow an olive branch. "Unfortunately, in the past years, they made a lot of missteps and created such unfavorable conditions for relations with Russian Federation that it will be hard for them to abandon it all in the future", he added.

Once again, it feels like there is no uniform USA foreign policy. "We talked about that in the discussion that we had with Mr Lavrov yesterday".

Lavrov says he thinks "it will be difficult" to hammer out the details of the truce around the Syrian town of Idlib. "These are two very large countries and we should find places that we can work together, let's try to work together". Although he and other Cabinet officials have maintained that position consistently, Trump has repeatedly questioned USA intelligence about Moscow's involvement while denying any collusion with his campaign. Trump denies any collusion and has repeatedly questioned US intelligence about Moscow's involvement.

Otherwise, "we will always sit on their hook", he said.

Commenting on the U.S. call to downgrade diplomatic ties or isolate Pyongyang for its missile tests, Foreign Secretary Alan Peter Cayetano said it is studying how to downgrade because it does not have much engagement with them.

Heightened tension is also tied to a USA investigation into links between members of Trump's campaign team and Russian officials.

Lavrov met with US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on the sidelines of a series of ASEAN ministers' meetings in the Philippine capital, Xinhua reported.

There's no immediate reaction to the meeting from the USA side. Both emerged from the meeting with cautious flickers of optimism that U.S. -Russia relations might be improved.

At the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) forum, Tillerson also told reporters that the execution and implementation of new UN sanctions imposed on North Korea would be closely monitored and that the resolution sends a strong signal to Pyongyang.

U.S. President Donald Trump has spoken to the leader of Thailand's military junta, Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha, and invited him to the White House, but no date has been set yet.

Then, throughout the weekend, state-run news outlets cast Trump as "weak" and a "loser" after he signed the bill.
