On Tuesday, Secretary of State Tillerson met with Sergey Lavrov and Vladimir Putin, his demand for Russia to abandon Assad rebuffed.
Deplorable bilateral relations persist, Trump worsening what he promised to improve. Commenting, Lavrov said “the current state in our relations regarding the global agenda is not calm, to say the least.”
