In the spring Russia handed over the administration of the President of the United States, a document providing a plan for the restoration of relations between Washington and Moscow, according to Buzzfeed.

According to the publication, the road map called for the restoration of diplomatic and military communication, as well as contacts between special services, which were frozen during the administration of Barack Obama.

The state Department did not comment on recent media reports.

«Not that I know of. This could be regarded as a private diplomatic conversation and I can’t confirm any details of this,» said state Department spokesman Heather Nauert.

She added that the U.S. is set to normalize relations with Russia.

«The Secretary of state (USA Rex Tillerson — Approx. ed.) talked a lot about this, our relationship, noting that we are taking a pragmatic approach to our relations with Russia, and that there are areas where we can work together. Where we disagree, we will speak out for American values, will speak about American values and things that are important to our people, but we also want to work with them,» — said the diplomat.

Last week, the state Department said that the US wants to stop the exchange of diplomatic action with Russia on the principle of «an eye for an eye» and hope to normalize relations.

In turn, the Russian Ambassador to the USA Anatoly Antonov said that Moscow is ready to take concrete steps to improve relations with Washington.
