MOSCOW, December 13. /TASS/. Russia is prepared to end the absurd state of affairs in Russian-US relations, but for the time being it has no idea of how a new Administration in Washington will prefer to act, Russian presidential aide Yuri Ushakov told the media on Tuesday, when asked about the outlook for the normalization of bilateral relations when US President-elect Donald Trump and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson take over.
"We would like to get out of this critical state, which is no good either for Russia or for the United States. This state of affairs in relations between two great powers is absurd," Ushakov said. "We are prepared to do our part of the job. It remains to be seen how a new Administration will prefer to act."
He added that a new White House team was still "not only to take seats but also to get through the Senate’s sieve, which is not easy at all."
ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson, who has been nominated by President-elect Donald Trump as the new US Secretary of State, is a solid individual and a big professional, Ushakov went on.
"Russia’s representatives, and not only the president, have good business relations with this person. Everyone considers him to be a rather solid individual, with his own opinion, his viewpoint, and certainly as a very big professional in his sphere," Ushakov said.
