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.
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.
