Turkey's Cavusoglu meets Russian counterpart in Manila

Rex-Tillerson-malaysia-north-korea Russian, US diplomats discuss North Korea

Despite the double blows of new US sanctions on Russian Federation and Moscow's retaliation, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson still has hope for better relations with Russian Federation.

Speaking at the ASEAN Regional Forum in the Philippines Monday, US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said he told Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov that "meddling in the elections is certainly a serious incident".

"We would be interested to see what impression the USA special envoy has on the current state of affairs", Lavrov said.

On August 2, US President Donald Trump signed into law the "Countering America's Adversaries Through Sanctions Act" that effectively imposes new sanctions against North Korea, Iran and Russian Federation.

US President Donald Trump's special representative for Ukraine negotiations will soon make his first visit to Moscow to discuss the conflict in eastern Ukraine.

That's what Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov (sir-GAY' lahv-RAWF') has said in televised comments after his meeting with U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson in Manila on Sunday.

They are also likely to discuss the timing of the next round of security talks involving the two countries' foreign and defense ministers, which sources familiar with Japan-U.S. relations said earlier are being arranging for around August 17. "In places we have differences we're going to have to continue to find ways to address those", said Tillerson during press conference following the meeting with the Foreign Minister of Russia Sergey Lavrov in Manila according to Reuters. Washington has said a few times that it does not rule out any type of response to North Korea's problem, including a military one. But between Trump's praise for Russian President Vladimir Putin and his skepticism of the USA intelligence community's finding that Russia interfered in the US election, the Republican-controlled Congress took extraordinary measures to curtail the power of a president from their own party.

Tillerson also said Monday that Trump's administration is preparing to respond to Moscow's demands. Let's try to work together.

U.S. secretary of state is scheduled to visit the region next week to push for downgrading of diplomatic engagements and exchanges with North Korea.

"He (Tillerson) wanted to know, first of all, and he started with this, the details of those decisions, which we had to take in response to the law on anti-Russian sanctions adopted in the U.S. Congress".

"The best signal that North Korea could send that they're prepared to talk would be to stop these missile launches", he said, holding out the prospect of U.S. envoys sitting down with Pyongyang's isolated regime. Discussions are also continuing on expanding the U.S.

"Naturally, such actions, including the illegal retention of our diplomatic property since December of past year, could not remain unanswered, and won't be in the future. At the same time, we are ready to normalize the dialogue, if Washington gives up the confrontational line", Tass news agency quoted the Russian Foreign Ministry as saying in a statement on Sunday.

Recall about eight days ago, that the United States Senate approved additional measures to expand economic sanctions against Russian Federation, as well as against Iran and North Korea. "Other current global matters, including the internal conflict in Ukraine, were also discussed", the Ministry wrote.
