Russia Relations At All-Time Low

Russia Relations At All-Time Low

In retaliation, the US bombed the Syrian air base used to launch the chemical weapons attack.

The United States is "not getting along with Russian Federation at all", Trump said at a press conference at the White House.

Trump said in a Fox Business interview this week, "We're not going into Syria".

"It'd be a fantastic thing if we got along with Putin and if we got along with Russian Federation". Secretary Tillerson told President Putin peace can not happen in Syria while Assad is still in power.

Standing side-by-side with NATO's Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg at the White House, Trump said: "It would be wonderful. if North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and our country could get along with Russian Federation". HEALTHCARE Trump tells the Wall Street Journal he might consider withholding billions of dollars of Obamacare payments to health insurers to force Democrats back to the negotiating table on healthcare.

However, the Syrian nerve gas attack blamed on Russia's ally, Syrian President Bashar Assad, and the retaliatory U.S. missile attack against Syria has sent U.S. -Russia ties to rock bottom.

But after last week's chemical weapons attack their relationship is increasingly becoming a burden for Putin, jeopardizing chances for improved relations with the U.S. "This has built for a long period of time, but we'll see what happens".

"We have information that a similar provocation is being prepared... in other parts of Syria including in the southern Damascus suburbs where they are planning to again plant some substance and accuse the Syrian authorities of using chemical weapons", he said on Tuesday.

Microsoft begins denying updates to some Windows 7 users
While it's evident the event will focus on education, Microsoft will also debut a new product - Microsoft Surface CloudBook . And if it's going to be what we think it will be, that device could effectively push Chromebooks to the sidelines.

As both sides sought to find some common ground Mr Tillerson said there was a "low level of trust" between the U.S. and Russian Federation and pledged to increase communication between Washington and Moscow.

Konstantin Kosachev, the head of the foreign affairs committee in the upper house of the Russian parliament said Moscow would only agree to restore the link on condition that the "U.S. abandons any action against the Syrian army".

"We need to attempt to put an end to this steady degradation, which is doing nothing to restore the trust between our two countries or to make progress on the issues of greatest importance to both of us". And he suggested that possible war crimes charges could be levied against the Syrian leader.

"Russia's initiative in 2013 to dismantle Syria's chemical weapons has been exposed as a shambles".

The high-level talks in Moscow clearly failed to bridge the widening gap between the U.S. and Russian Federation on Syria.

"I view the U.S. missile strike as an aggression, as it took place without an approval from the United Nations and without any investigation on behalf of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), which could have identified those responsible behind the use of chemical weapons", Muallem said.

Speaking following the meetings, Mr Lavrov ruled out withdrawing his support for Syrian leader Assad, saying that "ousting a particular personality is not on our agenda".
