On August 10, Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov spoke by phone with US Secretary of State Michael Pompeo at the latter’s initiative.

The officials discussed a number of international issues, including the situation in Syria, as well as other subjects that were reviewed by the Russian and US presidents during their meeting in Helsinki on July 16.

Mr Lavrov conveyed Russia’s categorical refusal to accept the new sanctions recently announced by Washington in connection with Russia’s alleged involvement in the so-called Skripal case. He emphasised that neither the United States nor the UK, nor any other country has presented a single shred of evidence to support such assertions since the Salisbury incident.

The top diplomats agreed to maintain contacts on all issues of mutual interest.
