MOSCOW, November 8. /TASS/. The Kremlin considers the US presidential polls an important event and is following the presidential election, as well as other international developments, Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Tuesday.
"The US presidential election is, undoubtedly, an important event," Peskov told reporters. "We are certainly watching [the election] as well as other international events."
He added that the Kremlin is currently focused on its working agenda.
Moscow is prepared to make progress in restoring relations with the US insofar as Washington will be ready for this, Peskov told reporters.
"We will be ready to make progress in developing and restoring these relations as much as our American partners will," he said.
He referred to the Russian president’s repeated statements that Moscow is interested in developing relations with the US. When asked whether Washington should take the first step to restore relations with Moscow, the Kremlin spokesman noted that "the political will is more important here."
"As much as our partners in Washington will be ready to revive our relations and take them to the level of a mutually beneficial dialogue, during which mutual interests are taken into account," he said when asked whether a new reset in bilateral relations is possible.
