Senator Rand Paul sent out a press release about his meeting with former Russian President Gorbachev.

Both Republican and Democratic lawmakers back in Washington quickly pointed out in tweets and formal statements that Russian Federation is not a friend of the us and that the president should not accept Putin's word as bond on matters of USA national security. The Council Committee is the Russian equivalent of the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee, of which Sen.

Trump was heavily criticized by both Republicans and Democrats for being too deferential to Putin in his remarks and appearing to side with him over USA intelligence agencies' assessment of Russian interference in the 2016 election. He was accompanied by Peter Goettler, Cato's president and chief executive, and Don Huffines, a Texas state senator who was chairman of Mr. Paul's presidential campaign in the state.

The House and Senate issued a flurry of bills and resolutions and to censure Russian Federation and remind Putin that his aggressive foreign policy actions are intolerable to US lawmakers.

Paul and the Russian lawmakers discussed a possible joint meeting by the end of this year between the Senate Committee members and their Russian counterparts from the Council's Foreign Affairs Committee, Kosachyov was quoted as saying by state-run news agency TASS.

In Moscow, he made a similar case for engagement. "But discussions are incredibly important". The trip also demonstrates the continued determination of certain members of the Republican Party to defend the Trump administration's attempt at warmer relations with Russian Federation.

Trump's Helsinki meeting was panned by a number of prominent Republican officials who said the president appeared to side with Putin over top USA intelligence officials.

Paul suggested he did not believe raising the issue of election interference would have been productive in his meetings with Russian officials.

Kosachev said members of his committee are "ready to discuss this question in a reasoned manner" with United States counterparts. "So we're not going to get into any of the differences other than we are trying to agree to have dialogue".

Kosachev said that the meeting could happen as early as this fall.
