MOSCOW, (Xinhua) — A tense relationship between Russia and the United States does not meet the interests of the American people or solve the problems in the world, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said here Friday.
Russian President Vladimir Putin and newly-elected U.S. President Donald Trump also discussed bilateral relations, he said during an interview with “Russia 24” TV channel.
On the issue of Syria, Lavrov said it will be one of the main issues for discussion at the Geneva meeting on Friday.
The meeting will be held in Geneva with the participation of representatives from Russia, the United States and Middle Eastern countries which are involved in the Syrian conflict.
