Meeting with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo

President of Russia Vladimir Putin: Mr Secretary of State, colleagues,

We are happy to welcome you to Russia.

As you know, just recently, a couple of days ago, I had the pleasure of talking with the President of the United States by telephone. I got the impression that the President is in favour of restoring Russia-US ties and contacts and resolving issues of mutual interest.

For our part, we have said many times that we would also like to restore relations on a full scale.
