Kremlin: Breakthrough in US-Russia Ties Long Way Off
The Kremlin on Thursday warned against talking about a breakthrough in Russia-US relations despite a possible meeting between US President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin.
“Let’s not talk about any breakthroughs; firstly we should talk about as a starting point getting a dialogue going. We have a long way to go before any breakthrough,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on a daily conference call.
Trump on Tuesday congratulated Putin on his re-election and said they would likely meet soon as relations between the two countries grow more strained over allegations of Russian meddling in the US electoral system.
