Russia's Lavrov says new Trump-Putin talks possible

Presidents Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin


Russian FM Sergey Lavrov said Sunday Moscow was ready for talks with the US. 

When asked if talks between presidents Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump were possible, Lavrov said, “We [Russia] have never avoided contacts, including with the representatives of countries which conduct an apparent unfriendly policy toward us".


This comes after new US sanctions against Russia. 


Lavrov added: “Because of this, if the leaders feel a need to meet and return to those matters which, as it seemed to us, would join Russia and the US, such a meeting will take place.”
