U.S. forces Russian Federation to close San Francisco consulate

"But we're also going to make sure that we make decisions that are best for our country".

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said he regretted how a phone call with his United States counterpart Rex Tillerson about Washington's decision went, according to his ministry.

Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov invoked a dancing metaphor on Friday to describe Russia's view on its bilateral relations with the U.S. The U.S. now operates consulates in the Russian cities of Petersburg, Yekaterinburg, and Vladivostok, in addition to the embassy in Moscow.

"Accusations made by the Russian government, including that United States officials threatened to break down doors in the relevant properties or that the Federal Bureau of Investigation is clearing the premises, are untrue", the official added.

Tamil Nadu girl, who filed case against Neet, ends life
Immediately after news of Anitha's death spread, her angry father and relatives blocked traffic on a road at Senthurai near here. Dejected after failing to secure an MBBS seat despite her efforts, Anitha committed suicide on Friday at her home in Ariyalur .

"We urge the U.S. authorities to come to their senses & immediately return the Russian diplomatic facilities", a message posted on Twitter by the Russian foreign ministry said. "The close of institutions is a lot more serious than the ousting of diplomats or the illegal curbing of diplomatic powers", Slutsky said.

The United States ordered Moscow to close a consulate in San Francisco in retaliation for the Kremlin's decision to force Washington to downsize its presence in Russian Federation.

Last month, Russian Federation forced the cut in USA diplomatic staff earlier this year in retaliation for American sanctions.

Heather Nauert, the spokesperson for the U.S. Department of State, said in a statement on Thursday that the move was to achieve parity in diplomatic missions.

Shai proud to breathe fresh Hope into Windies cricket
Hope came highly-recommended from the Caribbean - although an average of 18.61 prior to this Test is hardly a ringing endorsement. After bowling out England for 258, Windies posted 427 to secure a valuable first innings lead of 169 runs.

On Saturday the US took control of the facilities following an order from the Trump administration, Reuters reports.

The State Department described the Russian government's order that the U.S. cut down the number of diplomatic staff in Russia as "unwarranted and detrimental". Trump criticised the decision from the lawmakers, but signed the bill into law.

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova lashed out at the government of the United States for the closure and searches in the Russian Trade Representation, saying that those steps were driven by several years of anti-Russian rhetoric. They are in New York, Seattle and Houston.
