MOSCOW, December 15. /TASS/. Moscow expects to hold a constructive dialogue with the administration of US President-elect Donald Trump on arms control, Russian diplomat Mikhail Ulyanov said on Thursday.
"We expect that we will be able to build a constructive dialogue in all areas, including arms control and non-proliferation issues," said Ulyanov, who is the director of the armaments non-proliferation and control department at the Russian Foreign Ministry.
"We hope that the new US (authorities) will revise their current position and will actively support the working out of the Convention on fight against acts of biological and chemical terrorism at the Disarmament Conference," he said, adding that "this agreement would meet everyone’s interests."
The diplomat recalled Trump’s words on the readiness to fight against the Islamic State terrorist group and voiced hope that countering biological and chemical terrorism "will find a positive response of Washington."
