The Secretary of state of the United States Rex Tillerson spoke about the prospects for the further development of relations between Russia and the United States. Albright acknowledged that at present these relations are not in the best condition and did not rule out further negative scenario of development, especially after the adoption by Congress of the next package of anti-Russian sanctions.
In recognition of Rex Tillerson, President Trump remains nothing how to put his signature under the law on toughening of sanctions against Russia, Iran and the DPRK, previously approved by both the boards of the Parliament of the United States.
However, neither the President nor the head of the Department of state do not experience delight or even satisfaction from the fact that such a measure will come into force. Because it leads to another round of escalation of the crisis with Russia.
“On the one hand, negotiating a new package of sanctions against Russia reflects the opinion of the American people. On the other hand, US citizens do not want to receive a bad relationship with nuclear power, which is Russia… as for us parliamentarians, that they produced the decision, and they accepted it by an overwhelming majority]. President trump is aware of this, and all signs indicate that he will sign the bill,” said Tillerson, whose statement posted on the microblog of the state Department on Twitter.
At the same time, the head of us diplomacy promised that on its part the White house will try to take some in order to “minimize costs” from the introduction of new restrictive measures against Russia.
“Relations between Russia and the United States already are in a historically low point since the end of cold war. Unfortunately, they can deteriorate… the Question of the events of the last week is that they deteriorate or we can maintain some level of stability. We will make every effort to recent events have not undermined efforts to restore relations with the Kremlin,” said Tillerson.
According to him, unconditional “under the theme” the USA and Russia is fighting terrorism. He expressed hope that the cooperation in the fight against ISIS (a terrorist organization banned in Russia) will continue.
