Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov is saying he heard positive news in President Donald Trump's United Nations address: "that the US would not impose its way of life on others".
Lavrov, who met privately with Tillerson on two occasions this week, also bemoaned the state of US-Russian relations in his news conference, blaming "Russo-phobic hysteria" in the United States for the strain. "That was mentioned by all the European countries that participated in the negotiations", Lavrov, addressing reporters at the UN General Assembly on Friday, said, according to AFP.
"There is still hope for peace and we must not give up".
He said a lot of US politicians say "Russia has to do this and that on Syria", and Russian Federation has to solve the North Korea nuclear problem, and other global crises.

Lee and Glades counties are almost 85% restored and are projected to be essentially complete by Thursday night. Most of the remaining outages were in Florida Power & Light's service area in the southern parts of the state.
"When I asked Rex Tillerson how his words, that the Russian interference in USA election is well documented, can be proved, he said that he could not show me anything because that was classified information". "Why? Because legislators who find it important not to solve issues in different parts of the world, and not to develop beneficial relations with Russian Federation".
In his September 19 address to the UN General Assembly, Trump referred to the 2015 agreement as "one of the worst and most one-sided transactions the USA has ever entered".
He added, "We believe that all relevant nations can go back to the principles and spirit of the joint statement and look for a solution to the nuclear issue on the peninsula". He added that U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has talked about mediation and said if he received such a request "he would try to fulfill that".
The agreement was violated in 2006, when North Korea conducted its first nuclear test.
