After the long-anticipated meeting between Presidents of the US and Russia Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin there are still some questions left unanswered.

When asked about the cyber attacks, Russian foreign minister Sergey Lavrov claimed Trump “accepted” Putin’s assertion that Russia did not meddle in the 2016 election.

However, Rex Tillerson’s report of the meeting falls into contrast with this statement. In his briefing with reporters, Tillerson said that “[We are not] dismissing the issue in any way. That is why we've agreed to continue engagement and discussion around how do we secure a commitment that the Russian government has no intention of and will not interfere in our affairs in the future, nor in the affairs of others, and how do we create a framework in which we have some capability to judge what is happening in the cyber world and who to hold accountable.”

As we reported earlier, Putin assures Trump Russia didn't meddle into the election.
