Russia ready to retaliate after meeting with the U.S ends without a deal

Russia’s Foreign Ministry has said it has the right to retaliate against the United States after a meeting with the U.S did not end in any agreements on returning seized Russian diplomatic property.

Former President Barack Obama ordered the two Russian diplomatic compounds to be seized and the expulsion of 35 Russian diplomats for interfering in the 2016 U.S. presidential election campaign which Russia outrightly denied. Much depends on the outcome of the meeting in Washington between Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov and U.S. Undersecretary of State Thomas Shannon who discussed the diplomatic issues.

On Tuesday, the Foreign Ministry in a statement said a resolution to the problem had not yet been found.

“The Russian side stressed (in the meeting) that if Washington does not remove this and other irritants, including continued obstacles to the work of our diplomatic institutions, we reserve the right to take retaliatory measures based on the principle of reciprocity.

According to Reuters, Russia has complained that Russian diplomats were not being issued visas by U.S. officials which prevent them from replacing the staff who were expelled in December.

In order to strengthen the already bruised relationship, Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said he had submitted a list of things that needed to be done. Ryabkov told the TASS news agency,”To say we are on the brink of finding a solution and sorting out this situation would be an exaggeration,” “Such unacceptable and contradictory actions cannot be left without a response.”
