Russian Foreign Affairs Minister Sergey Lavrov arrives at the White House for an Oval Office meeting with President Donald Trump, Tuesday, December 10.
The meeting comes as bilateral ties between the United States and Russia are strained over allegations of election meddling, along with the conflicts in Ukraine and Syria.
The talks appear to have been initiated after Putin said last week that Moscow was eager to extend the New START nuclear arms control treaty by the end of this year “without any preconditions.”
At the recent NATO summit in London, Trump said he was aware of Moscow’s desire to “do a deal” on arms control, and said that China also could be brought into the process.
