US was hoping for the return of the American and Russian ambassadors after the presidential summit of Joe Bayden and Vladimir Putin. It is reported by CNN.
It is noted that the meeting of politicians will be talking about exacerbation in US-Russian relations. CNN indicates that the exacerbation is also associated with the departure of the US ambassador in Russia John Sullivan from Moscow and the Ambassador of the Russian Federation in the United States Anatoly Antonova – from Washington. If diplomats return to countries, it can establish their relationship.
National Security Assistant Chapter of the American Administration Jake Salvan previously told CNN that Washington does not think about the summit as about the opportunity to “point to something.” On the contrary, there are hoping for mutual understanding and communication.
On April 16, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that the Kremlin advised Sullian to go to the United States to consult with the new administration on relationships between Moscow and Washington. Sullivan himself first refused to leave, but soon left the country.
before that, in early April, the Russian Ambassador to the United States Anatoly Antonov said that the relations of Moscow and Washington are in the deepest crisis. He arrived in the Russian capital for consultations after the scandalous interview by Bayden March 21.
