WASHINGTON, 14 Jul – RIA Novosti. In the White house are considering the possibility of the return of Russian diplomatic property, said Deputy assistant US President Sebastian Gorka.
“Because we want to give a chance to cooperation (with Russia – ed.)”, — explained the Slide position of the White house in an interview with CNN.
“The fact that we may not have a General philosophy that may not have a common view of the statesman of the world, but the point is that there are subjects of General concern”, — said the representative of the administration.
As an example of such questions, where there can be successful cooperation, Hill cited the example of the situation in Syria.
“Do not forget that more than 400 thousand people were killed in Syria. It’s awful. But if we see the good will that comes from the Kremlin in terms of such things as a truce, then perhaps there is a chance that (U.S. Secretary of state) Rex Tillerson wants to see what is the improvement of relations between our two capitals,” said Hill.
Earlier, the Russian and U.S. presidents at the G20 summit in Hamburg have reached an agreement on ceasefire in the South-Western areas of Syria. The UN special envoy on Syria Staffan de Mistura said that the UN considers this a significant step in resolving the conflict.
The administration of U.S. President Barack Obama at the end of December 2016, passed a package of anti-Russian sanctions because of alleged “interference in election” and “pressure on American diplomats” working in Russia. Among other things, the United States has closed access to the two residential complexes, the so — called suburban “summer cottages” Russia’s permanent mission in new York and Embassy in Washington, which is the Russian diplomatic property. Presidential aide Yuri Ushakov, commenting on the arrest of property in the United States, said that Moscow considers the internal difficulties of Donald trump, but without a response it will not leave, if Washington will not do anything.
