U.S. President Donald Trump wished relations between Moscow and Washington would become better. U.S. Ambassador to Russia John Sullivan has already received instructions from the President to work towards this goal, RBC reports.
"President Donald Trump instructed Ambassador to Russia John Sullivan to do everything possible to improve relations between Moscow and Washington," the statement said.
According to Sullivan, he repeatedly discussed ways of constructive interaction between the United States and the Russian government with his predecessor John Huntsman. The new American ambassador intends to continue his course.
Sullivan noted that relations between the United States and Russia are at their lowest point in the last 30 years.
The Senate approved John Sullivan as a U.S. ambassador to Russia in December 2019. On February 5, he presented his credentials to President Vladimir Putin.
Earlier President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin once again invited U.S. President Donald Trump to visit Moscow in 2020, according to a Kremlin readout of Putin's New Year 2020 greetings to foreign leaders posted Monday. It was reported by CNN.
