Despite the constant sabotage that has taken place, both leaders have not lost perspective of what is important. They remain committed to peace despite the tense political climate that has developed.
"Speaking about risks of a military confrontation, I am 100 percent sure that [both the US and Russian] militaries won't allow this, and of course neither will President [Vladimir] Putin or President [Donald] Trump," Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said to RIA Novosti.
"After all they are leaders, elected by their people and are responsible for their peace," the Russian foreign minister said.
Although the U.S. recently punished Russia for its alleged role in poisoning a former spy who defected to the British, this has not jeopardized relations between the two countries. According to Lavrov, Trump indicated that he would "be glad to see [Putin] in the White House" and also said that he "would be happy to make a reciprocal visit [to Moscow]."
