The Kremlin feels cautious optimism about the prospects for an improvement in U.S.-Russian relations after Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov met U.S. President Donald Trump in Washington, a Kremlin spokesman said on Thursday.

“The conversation itself is extremely positive,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on a conference call with reporters, referring to Lavrov’s meeting with Trump on Wednesday.

Peskov said the Kremlin viewed the prospects of a thaw “with cautious optimism.”

“We have a lot of work ahead of us,” he said.

    When U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson met Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow last April US Journalists were banned from attending but not the Russian press and when president Trump met with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov at the White House on May 10 the Russian Foreign Ministry provided the photos because US journalists were banned from attending but not the Russian press.

    This is very strange and extremely shameful for the US. Is Trump turning America into a Banana Republic ?

    Politicians from across the American political spectrum have reacted strongly to Trump’s sudden dismissal of FBI director Comey.
    The firing jeopardizes an investigation into Trump campaign ties to Russia, many said.
