"Due to the impending fear of a chemical or biological weapons attack from a non-state actor, the Russian Federation proposed an initiative for the International Convention on the Suppression of Acts of Chemical and Biological Terrorism. In particular, the concern is with the increased risk of industrial chemicals and chemical and biological warfare agents being utilized by terrorists. This extensive proposal aims to be a "comprehensive, long-term, and global" solution against the risk of proliferation. Such concern pertaining to terrorist’s ability to acquire and utilize chemical or biological agents as a mechanism to carry out terrorist acts is qualified in the current international political climate."

"All I have to say to Trump, abandon this reckless game before it’s too late! You are deluding yourself if you think you’ve been dealt all the trump cards. Your imaginary perfect is the enemy of the good. The JCPoA is a good deal. Signed not only by the United States, but also by six other countries (including Russia), it is working well. All the parties are abiding by their commitments. There can be no deal with Iran without Iran itself. Your imaginary grand bargain is a folly; it has no basis in reality."

When Presidents Putin and Trump meet in a few days from now in Hamburg, they should use a narrow window of opportunity to stop the freefall of the bilateral relationship and make progress at least in some of the following areas (as I suggested as early as in December 2016, prior to Trump’s inauguration). First, they should aim to work together against terrorism. Second, Putin and Trump should do their utmost to prevent the spread of nuclear weapons. Third, preventing an arms race in cyberspace should become their joint  priority. Fourth, Russia and the United Stated can work together on putting out the various conflagrations in the Middle East. Fifth and last (but not least), the two countries should put an end to their puerile exchange of sanctions and countersanctions, and begin revitalizing their trade, economic, and humanitarian cooperation.
