  • U.S. denies visas to Russian replacements for expelled diplomats – Moscow

Adding to this, Obama administration announced that it would close two Russian waterfront compounds outside Washington and NY, describing them as spy nests, CNN reported.

In December 2016, former U.S. president Barack Obama expelled 35 Russian officials from the USA and seized two pieces of property belonging to the Kremlin.

Following the order, Russian President Vladamir Putin said he would not retaliate, leading then President-elect Donald Trump to praise the Russian leader in a tweet.

Russia will next week take a decision about if and how it will retaliate against the United States over the seizure of its diplomatic compounds on us soil, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Friday.

Russia is hoping that Shannon will have "detailed suggestions on how to resolve the situation" with the Russian property in the US, Zakharova said.

The Russian foreign ministry spokeswoman warned that his country "will have to take reciprocal measures" if the issue of the confiscated compounds is not resolved.

The two compounds were closed down over Russia's alleged interference in the U.S. presidential election, which Moscow has repeatedly denied. Perhaps the Trump campaign all of the meetings with Russians taken by the president's campaign were all just coincidental, and they all just happened to forget about them - until, of course, the media uncovered them.

Washington seeks to renegotiate free trade deal with South Korea
Trump has opposed multilateral agreements and frequently lashes out at countries that have large trade surpluses with the US. The decision comes as US President Donald Trump had earlier called the agreement a awful deal and a one-way street.

"There are too many CIA and Pentagon intelligence employees under the roof of the American diplomatic mission whose activities do not correspond to their status", Zakharova said.

Gorka said "the last thing" one could say about Trump was that he was weak, and that Trump had pressed Russian President Vladimir Putin on the matter at a meeting last Friday.

She reiterated familiar points made by top Russian officials trying to build a closer relationship with the Trump administration by blaming all bilateral issues on former US President Barack Obama.

"The seized compounds have not been returned yet".

She further complained that U.S. officials were not issuing visas to Russian diplomats to allow Moscow to replace the expelled employees.

"The number of personnel at the USA embassy in Moscow significantly exceeds the number of our personnel working in Washington". "Since the seizure of these compounds, we are unaware of any evidence or assessment that the treatment of USA personnel in the Russian Federation has markedly improved".

"We look at Russian Federation as a country that we don't have ideal relations with, we don't even have better relations with than other nations, but perhaps they could improve".
