Trump declared to Lavrov about the desire to increase trade with Russia several times

During talks in Washington between Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and US President Donald Trump, the head of the US administration said he would like to "increase several times" trade with Russia.

On the same day, December 10, the Russian diplomat met with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, with whom they discussed not only arms control and regional conflicts, but also business ties between the two countries. It is reported Kommersant.

Experts of the publication note that, despite the sanctions from the United States, economic relations between the two countries are being established.

It is expected that in the near future a bilateral Business Advisory Council will begin work, the launch of which was proposed in 2018 by Russian President Vladimir Putin.

It is possible that the first meeting of the new body will take place during the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum in June 2020.

Presumably, the council will include seven to ten businessmen from each side, who, with the support of the leadership of their countries, will work out agreements on economic and investment projects.

It should be noted that the negotiations between Lavrov and Trump were held on the eve of the adoption by the Senate of a bill on the possibility of recognizing Russia as a sponsoring country of terrorism, which we wrote about earlier.

    Are you going to trade for dollars? So the United States has these pieces of paper, "like d ..... ka makhorka." But what about the rejection of the $? Sanctions against Russia, bills, and we trade them? Lavrov is no stranger to turning his cheek!

    Lavrov is trying in any way to improve relations between Russia and the United States, despite the differences - this is his job as a diplomat.

      Just not at the expense of giveaways to these freaks, otherwise it’s blood diplomacy!

    Well. Export is profitable for us. But import? There are a lot of questions. Medicines, vitamins - this is one thing. Equipment - a little expensive.
