Russian Federation tells USA 'it's ready to normalise dialogue'

Russian Federation said recently it was forcing the U.S.to cut its embassy and consulate staff in Russian Federation by 755 people.

In a harsh readout of the Tillerson-Lavrov meeting on Sunday, the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs said the sanctions bill "could jeopardize worldwide stability and deals a powerful blow to prospects for bilateral cooperation".

Russia appreciates the efforts the Philippines makes to combat terrorism and extremism, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said during the talks with the Philippine Foreign Secretary Peter Cayetano. "We all agreed that it is a topic of the utmost importance and we need to follow it closely", Lavrov told reporters in Manila.

Last week, Mr Trump grudgingly signed a bill punishing Russian Federation for election meddling and making it harder for him to ease sanctions on Vladimir Putin's government. The legislation is aimed at penalizing Moscow for interference in the election and for its military aggression in Ukraine and Syria, where the Kremlin has backed President Bashar Assad.

"We hope that with a sensible approach on behalf of all involved parties, including the U.S., South Korea and Japan, we will be able to find a solution, which will be acceptable for all participants".

Russian Federation called the measure a "fully fledged trade war" and issued its own retaliatory response: demanding the reduction of USA diplomatic personnel by 750 by September 1 and planning to take over diplomatic property previously used by the U.S.

Susan Thornton is the top USA diplomat for Asia.




The secretary of state said the USA has been purposefully deliberate in its negotiations regarding Ukraine, ensuring that no party feels cut out of the process. "There's no alternative to that".

Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said the new USA sanctions against his country amount to a "full-scale trade war". He predicted "it will be difficult" to hammer out the details but that compromise can be reached if all parties - including the US - use their influence in Syria to persuade armed groups there to comply.

US intelligence agencies have said Russian Federation interfered in last year's election to damage Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton.

Russian Federation has denied seeking to sway the USA election and Trump has denied any collusion.

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

"We want to work with them on areas that are [of] serious national security interest to us, while at the same time having this extraordinary issue of mistrust that divides us", Tillerson added. Tillerson's special envoy for Ukraine, former USA ambassador to NATO Kurt Volker, IS heading to Moscow soon for talks amid a stalemate in the conflict and an uptick in violence.

And he has condemned the investigations, which are also looking at whether his campaign team colluded with Moscow, as a witch hunt.
