Washington and Moscow should improve bilateral relations, some progress is already there, but it is important to make more efforts, said U.S. Ambassador to Russia John huntsman.

«Thinking about the first three months that I spent in Russia as Ambassador of the United States of America, and looking at prospects that can bring us to 2018, I remain confident that we are not only unable to improve Russian-American relations, but we must do it,» said the huntsman in his article for newspaper the Moscow Times.

According to a senior American diplomat, «we have made progress, but we can do so much more rolled up their sleeves to find constructive ways forward».

«We all know that this path will be difficult and that the problems between our two countries is very complicated. But for a better future for the peoples of America and Russia, for the world, we must begin to find solutions to common problems we all face. How can we do it? I think in the end it all comes down to two things: trust and results,» said the huntsman.
