Russian Federation to Reopen Communication Channels With US

John Bolton spoke to The Associated Press in an interview at the USA mission in Geneva between morning and afternoon meetings with his Russian counterpart, Nikolai Patrushev, a follow-up meeting to the summit between Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki last month.
The Kremlin said on Wednesday it needed to understand if there was political will in Washington to cooperate with Russia as it prepared for a meeting between U.S. National Security Adviser John Bolton and his Russian counterpart Nikolai Patrushev.
The New Start agreement, limiting both sides' strategic nuclear arsenals, expires in early 2021.
Bolton also noted that the US under President Donald Trump had twice struck at Syria for its use of proscribed chemical weapons.
Putin and Trump have spoken extensively about modernizing their separate nuclear arsenals, but the Trump administration has not indicated a position on the treaty limits.
Bolton said he and Patrushev had discussed "a number of ideas" about how to do that, without specifying.
Speaking to journalists at a press briefing inside the US mission in Geneva, Bolton said that they had made some progress, and identified specific areas "in which it is possible to restore communication lines and conduct more work within the relevant departments". He added that they also agreed to resume contacts between defence and foreign ministries.
"We also underline our concern at the potential for further - and illegal - use of chemical weapons", they said.
"They [Iran] know what we expect and when they are ready to conform to that there's opportunity for settlement", Bolton said.
The United States has already imposed economic sanctions against Russian Federation over its alleged meddling in the 2016 USA presidential election.
Patrushev, according to state-run RIA news agency, said that no statement had been written "because the Americans wanted this to say that we had meddled in their elections, as is their opinion, but we deny this".
Bolton said he and Patrushev had discussed nuclear nonproliferation, Iran, North Korea, arms control, and Middle East issues including Syria and Afghanistan.
Until now, the U.S. position has been that any global support for Syrian reconstruction-whether from the United States or its allies-was contingent on a political settlement within the framework of the UN-led "Geneva process", which, as originally conceived, envisaged the end of Bashar al-Assad's regime.
"Just so there's no confusion here, if the Syrian regime uses chemical weapons we will respond very strongly and they really ought to think about this a long time".
Moscow looks set in its ways and Washington remains "very much interventionist", Paul said, citing as one example United States failure to fulfil its promises not to expand North Atlantic Treaty Organisation eastward to the borders of Russian Federation.
US National Security Advisor John Bolton said he warned his Russian counterpart on Thursday that Washington would not tolerate interference in November's mid-term elections, after fresh evidence emerged of Russian meddling.
Bolton said he believed Trump's decision in May to withdraw from the nuclear deal between Iran and world powers, followed by the reimposition of sanctions, was having a stronger effect than expected on pressuring Tehran.
Top American officials have traditionally participated in the annual ceremonies as a show of USA support for Ukraine, which this year celebrates its 27th year of independence from the Soviet Union.
Sanders said at the briefing, "This president since he took office created 700,000 new jobs for African-Americans". Then, Sanders went on to argue that Trump has created more jobs for black Americans than Obama did.

Criticizing the news media - for underplaying or overplaying stories, for getting something wrong - is entirely right. You've heard President Trump use the term "fake news" when describing the work of the capitol press corps.
