MOSCOW (Sputnik) — US State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert told Sputnik that the department is looking forward to the upcoming meeting between Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.

The US State Department announced earlier that Tillerson and Lavrov will have a meeting on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in New York on Tuesday.

"We look forward to the meeting. This relationship is an important one," spokeswoman Heather Nauert said.

The meeting will be the second one in three days. Lavrov and Tillerson met late on Sunday in the Russian mission to the United Nations in New York. The officials discussed the situation in Syria, the Geneva talks, held under the auspices of the United Nations, and the implementation of the Minsk agreements on the settlement of the Ukrainian conflict.
