Lavrov said the Kremlin lays hopes on trump

Russia hopes to build an equal dialogue with the US under President Donald trump. This was stated by Russian foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said in an interview with the Austrian magazine Profil.

“Of course, we closely followed what trump said about Russia during the election campaign and after winning the election. Its stated position on the necessity of establishing a normal dialogue between our countries inspires some hope for positive developments in bilateral relations”, – said Lavrov.

He stressed that “if there is mutual interest of Russia and the USA are certainly capable not only to move forward in addressing bilateral issues, but also to make a joint contribution to effective mitigation of the key problems of modernity”.

“In particular demand coordination of our countries in the fight against international terrorism,” Lavrov said.

We will remind, the day before Donald trump said that he respects Russian President Vladimir Putin, but this does not mean that he will necessarily get along.
