Having met with Vladimir Putin, US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Russia Foreign Secretary Sergei Lavrov are set to hold a joint press conference…
Bloomberg’s Paula Dwyer notes that Trump is now the fourth consecutive president who started off seeking a Russia reboot — only to have a change of heart about the relationship once in office. Judging by Lavrov’s sarcastic tone at the start of the talks, the Putin meeting wouldn’t have been as friendly as when the Russian president pinned a medal of friendship on Tillerson — then the CEO of Exxon Mobil — in 2013.
There will be no joint statement.
