Moscow is already working with Trump's administration and this interaction will become more intense over time - in particular, sides will discuss the situation in the east of Ukraine. This was stated by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in an interview with NTV channel.
"We respect the position of any country and are always ready to sit down and discuss any approaches, even those that are completely contrary to ours. I believe that our dialogue with the administration of Donald Trump, that already started, will continue and be more intense as soon as all links of his administration engaged in foreign affairs will be formed", Lavrov said.
According to him, now the sides are agreeing on the place and time of his contact with the new head of the State Department Rex Tillerson.
"Already there have been contacts through other channels, calls regarding issues related to our interaction in the military-political sphere", the Minister said.
Lavrov assured that in the near future he will be able to discuss Ukrainian question with Tillerson.
