We have discussed here in the past how Russian Federation is training North Korean students in transportation and logistics, providing fuel, and has opened a dedicated ferry line to move supplies, all starting earlier this year when Trump assumed the presidency and met with Chinese President Xi regarding the North Korean problem.
Experts whom BuzzFeed asked to review the plan were incredulous.
The document said that Russian Federation calls on the United States to complete the restoration of diplomatic and military communication channels, as well as the contacts between the intelligence services of the two countries. Several meetings came as a result of the proposal, including "special consultations" to discuss ongoing issues, including the Iran nuclear deal, Afghanistan, Ukraine, and North Korea.
Andrew Weiss, the vice president for studies at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, described the document to BuzzFeed as "nothing less than a road map for full-scale normalization of U.S". A raft of other military and diplomatic channels opened during the Obama administration's first-term "reset" would also be restored.
The proposal surprised longtime Russia analysts in the United States, given its broad scope and accelerated completion date and the fact that anger was widespread in Washington over alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 election.
"It just ignores everything that caused the relationship to deteriorate and pretends that the election interference and the Ukraine crisis never happened", said Angela Stent, a former national intelligence officer on Russian Federation during the George W. Bush administration. Trump went on to propose a joint US-Russia cyber effort, then after sustained criticism of the proposal, Trump said he knew "it can't" happen. "We do not comment on closed bilateral negotiations which is normal diplomatic practice", an embassy spokesperson said in a statement. The new measures banned textile exports and capped fuel imports.
Relations between the United States and Russian Federation have soured considerably since the opening of the Trump administration, when many expected Trump might bring the nations closer together as he said repeatedly was his goal during the campaign. "I would love to be able to get along with Russia", Trump said at a news conference.
