Lavrov says Putin ready to meet with Trump

Russian foreign minister: Trump invited Putin to the US in recent phone call

In particular, Lavrov said Donald Trump invited Vladimir Putin to the United States during a phone call and said he would be glad to see Putin in the White House.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has said building up the presence of the United Nations (UN) in Syria deserves attention as it will help collect reliable information. Trump told Putin he would be happy to make a reciprocal visit to Russian Federation, the RIA news agency quoted Lavrov as saying.

"He broached this topic again on several occasions, so we let our American colleagues know that we don't want to seem intrusive, but we don't want to appear impolite either, and considering the fact that President Trump made this proposal, we assume that he'll make it more specific".

President of Russia Vladimir Putin is ready to meet with USA leader Donald Trump, Foreign Minister of Russia Sergey Lavrov told RIA Novosti.

A new round of USA sanctions against Russian Federation and the US-led missile strikes on Syria added uncertainty to the possible Putin-Trump meeting. "And we hear all that".

The prospects of holding a US-Russia summit the White House have not improved, especially since relations between the two sides deteriorated further over a chemical attack in Syria on April 7.

"The statement by Mr. Mitchell [US Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs Wess Mitchell] that Ankara risks falling under sanctions if it purchases S-400 systems from Russian Federation, is exactly an example of a blackmailing attempt in the hope that it will be possible to ensure unfair competition for American companies", Lavrov said.

"We are ready to be responsible for the statistics that our military provided", Lavrov said in an interview with Russia Today.

Russian Federation has relatively warm ties with North Korea, with which it shares a small land border.
