Russia Relations At All-Time Low

Russia Relations At All-Time Low

Russian President Vladimir Putin has suggested that unnamed forces inside Syria are plotting to carry out chemical attacks and frame the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad for them.

"There is a low level of trust between our two countries". U.S. -Russia relations were supposed to improve under the Trump administration.

"I must give high appreciation to the position of the Russian government and authorities, president [Vladimir] Putin and the whole friendly Russian nation for the principled position that Russia took in relation to United States aggression", Muallem said at talks with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.

Tillerson met President Vladimir Putin and Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov for discussions that were meant to tackle, primarily, the fight against Daesh and safe zones, but that were consumed by the chemical attack in Syria. Trump said in a note on Twitter.

Tillerson attacks Iran nuclear deal and vows a "comprehensive review"
The second is the extent to which Trump's administration will attempt to weaken Iran's position in the Middle East. In announcing a broad review of Iran policy the Trump administration has not jettisoned the nuclear deal.

"I expressed the view that the current state of US-Russian relations is at a low point", Tillerson said.

In response to last week's chemical attack in the rebel-held town of Khan Sheikhoun, the United States fired 59 Tomahawk missiles against the Shayrat airfield on Friday, in the country's first strike against the regime since the war broke out six years ago.

"It would be a fantastic thing" if the two nations got along better, Trump said, but cautioned that "it may be just the opposite".

During Tillerson's visit to Moscow on Wednesday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov gave the top US diplomat an earful of criticism over the USA strike.

Assad has denied his government was behind last week's chemical weapons attack that killed more than 80 people. "Russian Federation has done it for the eighth time", the Syrian top diplomat added.

He said earlier he would ask The Hague and the worldwide community to investigate the allegations. "Russian Federation now has a lot to prove", U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Thursday: "We can not and will not support attempts to pass without proof a UN Security Council resolution condemning the government 'on the quiet, ' without any inspections". Washington warned Moscow, and Russian troops at the base were not hit. "In some ways, they are too much alike", added the expert.
