Tillerson on talks with Lavrov: It was a good meeting.

28
On the eve of the Austrian capital, a meeting was held between the heads of the foreign affairs agencies of Russia and the United States. As soon as Sergey Lavrov and Rex Tillerson sat down at the negotiating table, the journalists asked the Russian Foreign Minister what he thought about Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as the Israeli capital. Sergei Lavrov repeatedly pretended not to hear the question.


The meeting of Tillerson and Lavrov was held "on the margins" of the OSCE Ministerial Council, where the representatives of the United States decided to attend.

Tillerson on talks with Lavrov: It was a good meeting.


A short comment from Tillerson on his meeting with the Russian foreign minister was posted on the US State Department website:
I will not say what we have achieved. But if we can make progress, we will definitely have it. We had a good dialogue. We had a cooperation. So far, nothing has been decided. You can not solve it in one meeting.


Recall that earlier Tillerson called Russia the main threat to European security "because of Ukraine." According to Tillerson, it is the Ukrainian question that “hinders the rapprochement of the United States and Russia.”

As you can see, the United States is constantly interfering with something. Recall that when the previous US president refused to come to the opening of the Olympics in Sochi, there was still no “Ukrainian issue” on the agenda of Russian-American relations. Found such an excuse as “infringement of LGBT rights”, created the so-called “Magnitsky list”. So, it is quite obvious that the United States will always look for a reason for confrontation. If they don't find it, they invent it themselves.

    Does the Russian Foreign Ministry seem to have declared recognition of West Jerusalem as the capital of Israel? Or is it a duck?

      The Russian side is categorically against the escalation of tension in the BV by Trump's statements.

      (Sergey Lavrov repeatedly pretended not to hear the question) In my opinion, Lavrov made it clear what we think on this issue. Non-intervention.

        It was a short love affair of mine
        It was a beautiful hoax - a game of shadows
        A caravan of random days is far gone
        Where did they melt, who now knows

        It was a fascinating attraction
        So no one was joking like me and him
        He jokingly put me in an empty car
        I left the train jokingly laughing
        (from song)

      There are no official statements, which Lavrov confirmed with his silence. And in a smart way, in general, Russia needs to distance itself from this situation. It’s just mattresses where they don’t ask. Russia has no "vital" interests there

          You are not a stupid person, I hope, If you yourself read the news on the specified link,

          Moscow views East Jerusalem as the capital of a future Palestinian state. “At the same time, we consider it necessary to declare that in this context we consider West Jerusalem as the capital of the State of Israel”,

          you know that there is no recognition. Why consider everyone stupid. Very disappointed

            The Russian Foreign Ministry issued a statement in which it unexpectedly recognized West Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, and East as the capital of a future Palestinian state, writes The Times of Israel. As a result, Russia became the first state on the world stage to recognize the status of capitals for certain parts of the city, and such a move by Moscow came as a surprise to everyone, including local authorities.

              The original source states (translation from diplomatic into Russian). What in perspective, in the formation of a Palestinian, full-fledged state, Russia recognizes (if nothing changes) East Jerusalem as the capital of a Palestinian state. And in this context will consider West Jerusalem, the capital of Israel

    They always have everything OK. A smile from ear to ear for any reason and impenetrable conceit ... We wouldn’t pay five lards for the Maidan, we wouldn’t buy Crimea for Russia. In an attempt to recoup also BV lost ... But the smile from the "face" does not leave. wassat

      If our sworn enemy praises this meeting, then wait for the trouble for Russia and our people ... either they will strengthen the sanctions or have concluded a separate deal behind the backs of our people ... there is no faith KREMLIN.

        Well, why so immediately ... The old hippie, Rex's predecessor, also constantly kept talking about the productivity and fruitfulness of the meetings with Lavrov, yeah. This is only a turn for zhurnalyug and an attempt to "hold the face." Again - it is necessary to somehow reassure the "community". Well, he won’t shout to the whole world: “It’s not grown together, they sent me ...” Somehow.

    They haven’t decided anything yet. This can not be solved in one meeting.
    ... for that they are diplomats - they will never tell the truth directly and openly ...

    We had a good dialogue. We had a cooperation. Haven’t decided anything yet

    We talked well and even “cooperated”, but didn’t decide anything. And what can be decided with an opponent who not only does not hear the interlocutor, but also does not want to listen to him. It is said that Russia is an enemy, which means an enemy that either surrenders or is strained from all sides (which is happening). But the work of diplomats is to try to talk and agree.

      RUSSIA’s diplomacy looks like a hit on the cheek by the Americans ... then on the right they’re tired of being beaten on the left ... soon they will start kicking in the balls when our hands get tired ... in response to the Russian diplomats, we can only hear ... we are sorry ... we at a loss ... we hope ... we are counting ... this list already amuses me ...
      change the record ... in your ears there is ringing, groaning and grinding of teeth from such diplomacy.

        This is called PROMOTION-TO-FRIENDSHIP. America is a likely friend. Comrade Brezhnev was friends with Bokassa. Bl .., what are we for such a people?

    Tillerson called Russia the main threat to European security "because of Ukraine." According to Tillerson, it is the Ukrainian issue that "prevents the rapprochement between the US and Russia."

    The main threat to European security is the very existence of US and NATO bases on its territory.

    In my opinion, there will be no sense from this meeting. The Americans will still turn the way they want. They say one thing and do another! yes

    As you can see, the United States is constantly interfering with something.

    This can not be solved in one meeting.

    I will say more ... not two, not three ... not ten can solve this, pouring empty into empty ...
