 Lavrov: dialogue between Russia and US leaders should not get stuck in political intrigues

Dialogue between Russian and US Presidents Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump, including on strategic stability, should not get stuck in political intrigues and bureaucracy,  Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said at the Moscow Conference on International Security.

He noted that Moscow favors extensive dialogue on the current major issues, including support for strategic stability. "The Russian and US presidents talked about it over the phone on March 20. I wouldn’t like the two leaders’ understanding of the particular importance of this issue to be mired in bureaucratic games or be a hostage to political intrigues," TASS cited Lavrov as saying.

Lavrov also said that Moscow calls on Washington to jointly tackle the issue related to the modernization of US strategic delivery vehicles in accordance with the New START Treaty.

"We have honored all our commitments under the Treaty on Measures for the Further Reduction and Limitation of Strategic Offensive Arms and call on the US, in accordance with the procedures provided for by that treaty, to jointly address the issues related to the modernization of part of some US strategic delivery vehicles," the diplomat added.
