Relations between US and Russia are at low point and there is a low level of trust between the countries, but two world's foremost nuclear powers cannot have this kind of relationship. This was reported by US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson during the press conference with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov in Moscow, according to CNBC.
The talks with Russian president Vladimir Putin lasted two hours.
"I expressed the view that the current state of U.S.-Russia relations is at a low point and there is a low level of trust between our countries," Tillerson said.
He also added that "world's two foremost nuclear powers cannot have this kind of relationship".
Tillerson also announced that Syria has used chlorine bombs and other chemical weapons on more than 50 occasions, according to Associated Press.

As it was reported, on April 11 Secretary of State Tillerson arrived in Moscow for the first time as the Head of American Foreign Service. He was meeting with Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov today. Kremlin said that Putin did not have a meeting with Tillerson in his schedule.
The media reported that Tillerson would go to Moscow to present evidence that Russia knew about the use of chemical weapons by government forces against civilians in Syria and tried to hide it.
British Foreign Minister Boris Johnson was supposed to arrive in Moscow before Tillerson, but refused to visit because of the situation in Syria.
