Washington: US President Donald Trump on Thursday expressed confidence that things will "work out fine" with Russia and hoped that China would "properly deal" with North Korea.
"Things will work out fine between the USA and Russia. At the right time everyone will come to their senses & there will be lasting peace!" Trump told his more than 27.8 million followers on Twitter this morning.
His tweet came after US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson left Moscow following his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov.
A day earlier, Trump had said that the US-Russia relationship are at a low point.
Last night he was scheduled to speak to Tillerson.
Trump's tweets appear to be a reflection of the talks that he had with his Secretary of State.
In another tweet, he hoped that China would act on North Korea.
"I have great confidence that China will properly deal with North Korea. If they are unable to do so, the US, with its allies, will! USA," Trump said.
The US president hosted his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping at his Mar a-Lago residence in Florida last week.
The two leaders again spoke over phone this week.
Trump has been asking China to act on North Korea and co-operate with it on Syria.
Trump yesterday praised China for abstaining a UN Security Council vote on Syria and taking actions against North Korea.
