Putin, Trump launch vehicle wars with new limousines

Talking about the risk of a military confrontation between Russian Federation and the US, Lavrov said that he was absolutely confident that Putin and Trump will not allow an armed conflict to happen. Lavrov compared the USA and North Korean statements prior to the meeting to tensions between "boxers" before a match. A new round of USA sanctions against Russian Federation and the US-led missile strikes on Syria added uncertainty to the possible Putin-Trump meeting. Mr. Lavrov added that such a summit was not now being discussed but the Kremlin hopes that a meeting at the White House would materialise.

Russia's Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said the Kremlin had taken Trump at face value when he suggested Putin should visit the White House during a recent conversation, but is now unsure if the offer still stands. Prototypes of the standard sedan have been spotted being tested wearing the same sort of black and white camouflage that's used to hide the design details of the Cadillacs from spying cameras before they make their official debuts painted black.

Moscow's hopes for better ties with Washington under Mr Trump have withered amid the ongoing investigations into the alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation.

Joint Staff Director, Lt. Gen. Kenneth McKenzie, said Thursday that US military officials believe there was probably some chlorine and some sarin at all of three Syrian chemical weapons facilities targeted in last Saturday's missile strikes.

The US expelled 60 Russian diplomats and closed the Russian consulate in Seattle as punishment. That prompted the US, Britain and France to launch a missile strike on Syria.

Following the strikes, Russian Federation announced it may consider giving Syria S-300 systems so it can defend itself in the face of such acts of aggression.

Lavrov criticised the US-led missile strikes on Syria last week as they undermined the Geneva talks for the Syrian settlement under the auspices of the United Nations at a time when Russia, Turkey and Iran very closely approached the resumption of the Geneva process.

"Now, we have no moral obligations", he said.

Asked about the danger of a Russia-US military clash, Mr Lavrov voiced hope that military leaders realise that "any actions that could provoke a direct clash between the Russian and the US militaries are unacceptable".
