The US President-elect Donald Trump claimed that Washington might lift some sanctions against Moscow, in case the White House managed to sign a deal with the President Vladimir Putin on significant reduction of nuclear weapon. Responding to a journalist's question on future prospects of negotiations between Russia and the US on nuclear disarmament, Trump said, 'They have sanctions on Russia - let's see if we can make some good deals with Russia. For one thing, I think nuclear weapons should be way down and reduced very substantially, that's part of it'. Beside that, he criticized Russia's intrusion into the Syrian conflict. According to the US President-elect, it led to a 'terrible humanitarian situation' in Syria.
