President Donald trump will meet with the Minister of foreign Affairs of Russia Sergey Lavrov on Wednesday, according to his schedule. According to the White house, the meeting will be held at 10:30 a.m. in the oval office and will be closed to the press.
Lavrov planned Wednesday in Washington to meet with Secretary Rex Tillerson. Tillerson and Lavrov plan to meet Wednesday to discuss Ukraine, Syria and bilateral issues, said the state Department.
In addition to tensions between Washington and Moscow in connection with geopolitics, the meeting between Tillerson and Bay, and now between trump and the Russian foreign Minister, spoke out against recrimination in connection with the alleged intervention of Russia in the 2016 elections and the dismissal of FBI Director James Komi.
The administration of the trump explained the dismissal of the Komi Republic, his work on the investigation on the mail server of the Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, but Democrats have ridiculed the notion, raising Parallels with the dismissal of the Watergate era. Former attorney General Sally Yates said Monday that earlier this year she warned the White house that national security adviser Michael Flynn may be "essentially blackmailed by the Russians."
Her statement prompted the story of alleged relations campaign trump with Russia in the headlines.
In an interview last week, trump once again refused to accuse Russia of trying to influence the election of 2016 by hacking and other means despite the overwhelming consensus of U.S. law enforcement and intelligence agencies. Trump and the President of Russia Vladimir Putin on the phone last week talked about the war in Syria for the first time after trump allowed a rocket attack on the airbase of the Syrian government last month after the alleged attacks by the regime using chemical weapons.
