MOSCOW, April 4. /TASS/. The slow process of forming the new US administration has been hampering Moscow’s efforts to build dialogue with Washington, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Tuesday.
"I believe that we will have a frank conversation (with US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson) on the entire range of bilateral issues as well as global ones, particularly on the pressing issues that the Middle East, Europe and other parts of the world have been facing," Lavrov said. According to him, "if Russia and the United States fail to build practical dialogue on these issues, no progress will be made in solving them."
"The slow process of forming the new US administration, particularly appointing new staff at the Department of State, does not help (build dialogue between Russia and the US)," the Russian top diplomat said. "However, we expect a frank and useful conversation that would be in line with the intentions expressed by our presidents during their telephone calls, the latest of which took place yesterday evening," Lavrov added.
