Senate Republicans Meet Lavrov in Moscow Ahead of Trump-Putin Summit

Trump Putin to meet in Helsinki July 16th

A U.S. congressional delegation was in Moscow on Tuesday meeting with Russian foreign minister Sergey Lavrov and Russian parliamentarians. The U.S., alongside the European Union, placed tough economic sanctions on Russian Federation in response.

"I think it's always a good idea to sit down and talk, especially with our adversaries", said Napper, who is also a former ambassador to both Latvia and Kazakhstan.

The Kremlin on Tuesday said Vladimir Putin would be comfortable with holding one-on-one talks with President Donald Trump at their summit later this month in Helsinki, according to a report.

Both sides indicated that discussions touched on a range of topics, including Syria, Ukraine, allegations of election meddling, as well as Russia's economy - the latter topic raised by Shelby despite punishing US sanctions levied against Russian Federation over its actions in Ukraine.

The US Supreme supports Trump's immigration veto
Chad was recently removed from the list after the administration said that country had beefed up its information-sharing. Both these judges said Trump's anti-Muslim comments were proof that the ban was biased against Muslims and immigrants.

Shelby told Lavrov the meeting was arranged "realizing that we have a strained relationship when we could have a better relationship between the USA and Russian Federation".

Peskov was responding to a CNN report on Monday that said Trump plans to meet face-to-face with Putin at their July 16 meeting before allowing aides to join them.

Peskov told reporters that, besides Crimea, "all other issues" were open to discussion and finding compromise, and hoped the summit would lead to a deeper understanding between the two nations.

The US senators are due to meet with the upper house of the Russian parliament later Tuesday.

Putin "feels absolutely comfortable in all formats that are comfortable for his interlocutors", Peskov said, adding that the Kremlin "doesn't rule out" a private meeting between the two presidents.
