u.s. criticizes russia for violating the rights of political activists and journalists and it says moscow should be stopping by attacks on. syrian civilians however the u.s. secretary of state told congress on wednesday ignoring moscow is not an option we have been harder on russia in this administration than has been the case in many previous administration the president is looking forward to an opportunity to find those handful of places where we can have productive conversations that lead to improvements for each of our two countries political observers in both russia and the us doubt the upcoming summit will be anything more than theatre but that maybe all the two leaders want any well in jordan al-jazeera washington u.s. defense secretary james mattis has been in china's capital for talks on the regional security territorial disputes in the south china sea and the presence of
