MOSCOW, April 6. /TASS/. US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson’s visit to Moscow, due on April 12, may provide an impetus to Russian-US relations, Chairman of the Russian State Duma (lower house of parliament) Committee for Foreign Affairs Leonid Slutsky said at the committee’s meeting on Thursday.
"We will see if the visit provides a chance for an improvement," Slutsky said. "I hope that as far as Russian-US dialogue and cooperation in the fight against international terrorism go, it (the visit) will prove more meaningful and fruitful than the first meeting between Tillerson and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov in Bonn," the Russian lawmaker added.
At the same time, Slutsky added that "a campaign against Russia is going on in the global political system, at the international relations level." "Unfortunately, the United States’ rhetoric has not been in line with its actions concerning Russia. Actually, there have been no actions yet," he said.
US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is expected to visit Moscow on April 12 upon the invitation of Russian top diplomat Sergey Lavrov.
