Issues pertaining to Russia and the US jointly combatting terrorism will be among the main topics of the meeting between Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Russia’s deputy foreign minister, Sergey Ryabkov, has revealed.

“Against the backdrop of events in many regions around the world and, of course, given the tragedy in Saint Petersburg, we are open and fully ready – in any format of any intensity and at any depth – to cooperate with the US on this most important and probably key issue for world security, if the other side is ready for this,” Ryabkov emphasized.

Tillerson will visit Moscow on a working visit on April 11th-12th. This will be his first visit to Russia as the head of the Donald Trump Administration’s foreign policy department.
