"We recognise that the world is better off, I believe, if Russia and the U.S. have fewer tensions, get along a little better, maybe put aside some differences", Senator Richard Shelby said during Tuesday's meeting with Lavrov at the Russian foreign ministry.

For his part, Duma speaker Vyacheslav Volodin welcomed the delegation and thanked U.S. ambassador in Russia Jon Huntsman for the "initiative of inter-parliamentary dialogue".

"We agreed to choose a date and place right after the meeting of our presidents in Helsinki to find ways for the realizations of goals which will be hopefully set at this summit", Lavrov added.

At least one topic of discussion appears off the table for President Donald Trump's upcoming summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin: Russia's 2014 annexation of Crimea from Ukraine. "We could be competitors - we are competitors - but we don't necessarily need to be adversaries".

Lavrov also said Russian Federation was hopeful that the Putin-Trump summit could provide an opportunity for a frank conversation about issues which divide Russian Federation and the US.

"I hope coming out of the Helsinki meeting between our two presidents will be the beginning of some type of better understanding".

"With regard to Trump's negotiating chips, it doesn't really seem like he has any because we've already seen that he is denying that Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 election", she said.

"I hope your visit will be a symbol of restoring relations between the two parliaments", Lavrov told them during a meeting, Interfax said.

Relations between Russia and the US have sunk to their lowest point since the Cold War times over the Ukrainian crisis, the war in Syria and the allegations of Russian meddling in the 2016 USA presidential election.

Asked in a conference call with reporters if the Russian side would be comfortable with such a format, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said: "It absolutely suits us".
