Trump and Tillerson Meet with Russian Foreign Minister – Guess What They Don’t Discuss

President Donald Trump and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson each met with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov on Wednesday. Their discussions centered on ISIS, humanitarian issues in Syria, and the conflict between Russia and Ukraine.

According to descriptions of the meetings provided by the White House and the State Department, reports of Russian interference in the U.S. election did not come up despite the U.S. investigation into alleged attempts.

The White House has not yet addressed reported evidence that Russian-linked groups tried unsuccessfully to hack French President-elect Emmanuel Macron’s campaign in the days leading to his election on Sunday. Macron and Trump are due to meet in Europe later this month, when Trump embarks on his foreign trips with stops in Belgium for a NATO summit and Italy for a G7 summit.

CBS News reported Lavrov said, following his meeting with Trump, that the president did not raise concerns about election meddling. Neither the White House nor the State Department responded to inquiries about whether Lavrov’s comments are accurate, and spokesperson Sarah Huckabee Sanders referred to official readouts of the meetings for more information.

The White House statement reads:

President Trump emphasized the need to work together to end the conflict in Syria, in particular, underscoring the need for Russia to rein in the Assad regime, Iran, and Iranian proxies. The President raised Ukraine, and expressed his Administration’s commitment to remain engaged in resolving the conflict and stressed Russia’s responsibility to fully implement the Minsk agreements. He also raised the possibility of broader cooperation on resolving conflicts in the Middle East and elsewhere. The President further emphasized his desire to build a better relationship between the United States and Russia.

The issue in regards to Russian meddling should arise at the NATO summit on May 25 amid increasing concerns about Russian attempts to undermine political systems in western nations.
