TASS: Russia wants to resume contacts with US in 2+2 format — ambassador17 November 2018 | 08:40 | FOCUS News Agency
"We would like, for instance, to revive such a format as 2+2, i.e. between the foreign and defense ministers," he said in an interview with NTV television channel. "So far, we have been failing to do that. We hope very much that the two countries’ deputy foreign ministers will have a meeting in the near future over problems of anti-terror efforts. We hope that next year we will be able to organize a dialogue between our parliaments. At least, the Russian side has repeatedly stressed the necessity of such a dialogue."
"But I would like to say it once again that we could have done much more than we can do today," he added.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said earlier that Moscow hoped for the resumption of strategic stability dialogue with Washington after the election campaign frenzy calmed down in the North American country.
