  • Russian, US diplomats discuss North Korea

The U.S. wants to retain ties with Russian Federation despite alleged interference in the U.S. presidential election, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Monday.

Lavrov also said that Tillerson agreed to resume talks between US Undersecretary of State Thomas Shannon and Russia's Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov.

USA secretary of state discusses Kremlin's alleged collusion in last year's U.S. election with Russian FM Sergei Lavrov.

The meeting was the first between the two since the sanctions were signed into law by Trump. President Donald Trump, accused by critics of being too cozy with Russian Federation, signed the bill last week despite what he described in a signing statement as the bill's Constitutional flaws.

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson says Russian Federation is showing "some willingness" to start talking about a resolution to the crisis in Ukraine. "In places we have differences we're going to have to continue to find ways to address those", said Tillerson during press conference following the meeting with the Foreign Minister of Russia Sergey Lavrov in Manila according to Reuters.

He asked Lavrov "several clarifying questions" about Moscow's retaliatory moves and warned his Russian counterpart that the US would respond to these actions by September 1, according to RFE/RL.

Moscow vehemently denies any efforts to influence the U.S. election, and retaliatory sanctions passed by Congress last month - against President Trump's wishes - have sparked a tit-for-tat.

According to AMD the 17.8 release is the first driver to be compatible with the Vega GPU Architecture. However, the frequencies on the liquid-cooled Radeon RX Vega variant are somewhat higher.

Lavrov said the first thing Tillerson wanted to discuss was the sanctions.

"I asked several clarifying questions, just to describe the thinking behind that diplomatic note that we received, but I told them we would respond by September 1", he said, referring to Moscow's deadline to shrink the mission.

"Trying to help [Russia] understand just how serious this incident had been and how seriously it had damaged the relationship between the US and the American people and the Russian people", Tillerson said. Discussions are also continuing on expanding the U.S.

Although the Trump administration has indicated no specific action against Thailand, Mr Trump has ordered a study into the causes of USA trade deficits. "At the same time, we are ready to normalize the dialogue, if Washington gives up the confrontational line", he added.

"This is probably not the case", Ryabkov said, adding that "We can see that, in general, there are options when one can say that adequate support and majority, including among legislators, are ensured".

Washington sent Volker to Ukraine last month to assess the situation in the ex-Soviet republic, where a 2015 ceasefire between Kiev's forces and Russian-backed separatists in the eastern part of the country is regularly violated. Mr Lavrov said that United States military preparations in the Korean Peninsula area are only escalating tension and this should be avoided.
