Responding to a question about Congress of a bill on new anti-sanctions, Tillerson said that “we have a big problem with the Russians… our relations are at a record low and continues to deteriorate. Our goal — to stabilize the dialogue.”
“We are working to establish whether there was a basis to re-establish working relations with Moscow in the fields. Especially make an effort on Syria — said the head of American diplomacy.
On 6 June the President of the United States Donald trump asked the Secretary of state to establish relations with Russia. The head of state advised him to act in the most useful to business terms and not to hurry.
