Kremlin says feels 'cautious optimism' after Trump meeting with Lavrov

Kremlin says feels 'cautious optimism' after Trump meeting with Lavrov

Dmitry Peskov, the press secretary for Russian president Vladimir Putin as well as his translator, held a media conference call on Friday.

Attempts to fan tensions over a "Russian factor" are an internal affair of the United States, Peskov said.

Peskov also asserted that the Russian government has "never interfered in US internal affairs and are not going to do it in the future".

The Kremlin said Thursday it was too early to speak of a thaw in ties with Washington, a day after Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov met US President Donald Trump.

He said: " Chelsea deserved the title but I've said already they had most luck with injuries ". We were not worse than 14 points, that is for sure.

Russian President Vladimir Putin "has a few times announced his readiness for such meetings [with U.S. President Trump], his readiness to develop our relations as profoundly as our partners in Washington are ready to", according to Peskov.

Wednesday's meeting came as Trump was embroiled in a political firestorm over the investigations into allegations his U.S. presidential election campaign had colluded with Russian Federation. But word of Russia's influence in the presidential election, as well as the investigation into possible collusion between Trump's campaign and Russian officials, tested the tenacity of that alliance.

Both Tillerson and Trump met separately with Lavrov at the White House on Wednesday to discuss the escalating conflict in Syria, Russia's support for the Assad regime, and the Ukraine conflict.

Peskov was talking to reporters about U.S. -Russia relations, a fraught relationship that became decisively more complicated after Trump became president. Flynn, a retired U.S. Army lieutenant general, lied about his contacts with Kislyak, which eventually led to his dismissal.
