Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov met with U.S. President Donald Trump in the Oval Office yesterday in Washington. Both officials described the meeting as productive.

Lavrov made a point to describe in the Russian press how President Trump understood the need for better relations with Moscow but was being held back by the Deep State.

“As far as [US] relations with Russia are concerned, we have no reasons to doubt that President Donald Trump sincerely realizes benefits of good Russian-US relations for Americans, for American businesses, for the US in general and for the global situation,” Lavrov said, adding that such relations “should contain no element of favoritism to anyone” and “be based on the balance of interests, pragmatism and mutual benefits,” reported Russian state news agency TASS.

“We are aware that not everyone in the US shares our point of view. [Certain forces] are trying to slow down the normalization of our relations by all means, to impose more and more sanctions [on Russia],” he said.

Regarding alleged ‘secret information’ the American press is discussing, Lavrov was succinct.

“As far as our first meeting with President Trump [in the White House on May 10, 2017], none of us revealed any secret or confidential information to each other,” Lavrov said, answering to reporters’ questions. “If anyone thinks otherwise, then we would like to know what exactly they are talking about, what kind of information exactly is being mentioned in this story, which has already taken some surreal shape.”

“As far as today’s meeting is concerned… Well, I have no idea of what you mean by ‘secret information,'” he added.

When asked about possible new sanctions on Russia, Lavrov quipped, “I think that no matter what day you choose – your arrival to Washington will always coincide with either sanctions or impeachment.”
