Trump thank­ful for Rus­sian cuts

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - WORLD -

Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump on Thurs­day thanked Rus­sian Pres­i­dent Vladimir Putin for or­der­ing the US em­bassy in Moscow to slash its staff — boast­ing that this would cut pay­roll costs. Last month, the Krem­lin de­manded that Wash­ing­ton re­duce its diplo­matic foot­print in Rus­sia by 755 em­ploy­ees — both US diplo­mats and lo­cal staff — and close two com­pounds. This was seen as mark­ing a his­toric new low in post-Cold war Rus­sia-US re­la­tions.
