“President Donald Trump said that fighting terrorism is his number one international goal, and I believe this is absolutely natural. We will be sharing this approach, I am sure,” Lavrov was quoted as saying.

Lavrov also said he was still in discussions about a possible meeting with U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.
