Lavrov: US Establishment’s Russophobia Impedes Trump’s Russia Initiatives
Local Editor

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said that Russia shares US President Donald Trump's intention of establishing normal Russia-US dialogue, but Moscow will judge whether the US' interest is real based on practical steps.

"We have repeatedly stated that we positively assess president Donald Trump's words on his desire to establish normal dialogue between our countries, Lavrov told the Panorama magazine in an interview, adding that "we will only judge the real interest of our partners in constructive ... cooperation by their practical steps."

Lavrov, however, added that relations continue deteriorating.

"Even if there is some positive input from the president, it is fully canceled out by off-the-chart Russophobia in the US establishment where our country is portrayed as a threat," Lavrov said.

The minister recalled that Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin had spoken by phone in March.

"[Trump] proposed to hold a high-level meeting very soon, he invited [Putin] to the White House, he spoke about his desire to establish coordination of efforts on the international arena, to jointly curb the arms race," Lavrov added.
