US Senator Rand Paul has said he delivered a letter from US President Donald Trump to Vladimir Putin’s administration. Moscow says that it will consider it in the near future.
“I was honored to deliver a letter from President Trump to President Vladimir Putin’s administration,” the senator from Kentucky wrote on Twitter.
Dmitry Peskov, Vladimir Putin’s press secretary, confirmed that a missive had been received “through diplomatic channels,” and will soon be delivered to the president’s administration.
According to Paul, the letter “emphasized the importance of further engagement” between Washington and Moscow “in various areas including countering terrorism, enhancing legislative dialogue and resuming cultural exchanges.”
