MOSCOW, December 17. /TASS/. US’ Ambassador to Russia Jon Huntsman said on Sunday he is confident that both the American and Russian want relations between their countries to improve.
"Yes, I think we will expect to see further improvement in the US-Russia relationship. I say that because the American people expect it and demand it and the Russian people expect it and demand it as well," he said in a video address posted on the US embassy’s Twitter account.
"Sometimes politics can get in the way and the issues can be tricky," he said and stressed that he is "convinced that Americans and Russians should be able to find common solutions to global problems." "They are finding that," he said, citing as an example cooperation on Syria and on North Korea’s nuclear problem. "I hope that we find the same thing in Ukraine for example," he added.
