Trump called the condition under which he is ready to cancel sanctions against Russia
The US President-elect Donald trump said that he would prefer for “a certain period of time” not to cancel the sanctions imposed against Russia.
He stated this in an interview published in the Wall Street Journal, January 13, reported Reuters.
While the US President-elect has stated that he can lift the sanctions in the future. “If you live in friendship with Russia and this country really helping us, then what’s the point to impose sanctions against one who does well?” – said trump.
Trump suggested that he would lift sanctions imposed in December last year, the Obama administration in connection with the accusations against Moscow in cyberattacks. According to the elected President of the United States, this will happen if Moscow will help in the fight against terrorism and the achievement of other goals that are important to Washington.
Trump announced readiness to meet after the inauguration of the President of Russia Vladimir Putin . “I understand that they wanted to meet, and to me it is absolutely appropriate,” he said.
Recall that Obama has extended sanctions against Russia until March 2018.
