Russia Relations At All-Time Low

Russia Relations At All-Time Low

Tensions between Russian Federation and the United States deepened yesterday as U.S. president Donald Trump said relations with Russian Federation were at an "all-time low".

Any hope in Russian Federation that the Trump administration would herald less confrontational relations has been dashed in the past week after the new U.S. leader fired missiles at Syria to punish Moscow's ally for its suspected use of poison gas.

He today said Russian Federation "certainly could have" known about the chemical attack before it was launched last week, but added he'd like to think Vladimir Putin's government were not forewarned. "I do not know who saw them. But we can start by working together to actually de-escalate the conflict", she said. "I have absolutely no doubt we did the right thing", he said.

Russia's alleged meddling in the United States presidential election also hovered over what was the first face-to-face encounter between Putin and any Trump administration Cabinet member. We're a very, very strong country. "We're going to see how that works out".

"We fully expect the President will deliver to Congress an AUMF that he wants us to debate and vote on", McGovern said.

President Donald Trump pauses during a news conference with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg in the East Room at the White House in Washington, Wednesday, April 12, 2017, in Washington. "It's no longer obsolete", he said, though he repeated previous calls by United States presidents for Nato's European members to increase their defence spending.

MOSCOW (AP) - President Vladimir Putin's meeting with U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson hasn't produced any positive shift yet in Russia-U.S. relations, the Kremlin said Thursday.

Where relations between the two countries go from this point on is hard to guess.

Russian Federation and Iran are providing military support for Assad. "This is why I would like to thank Russian Federation for preventing attempts to use the UN Security Council to carry out an aggression against Syria". "The final outcome does not provide for a role for Assad or the Assad family for the future governments in Syria", he said.

The US military and intelligence community has intercepted communications featuring Syrian military and chemical experts talking about preparations for the sarin attack in Idlib last week, a senior US official tells CNN.

Mr Tillerson reiterated the United States view that Assad aircraft carried out the attack.

A fact-finding mission from the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) is investigating the attack. First and foremost, there was an important conversation with President Vladimir Putin.

Konstantin Kosachev, the head of the foreign affairs committee in the upper house of the Russian parliament said Moscow would only agree to restore the link on condition that the "U.S. abandons any action against the Syrian army".
