Austria’s President says his country won’t lurch to the right, despite the announcement of a new government featuring the far-right Freedom Party.
31-year-old Sebastian Kurz, who leads the more moderate People’s Party, is set to be the new chancellor.
But the Freedom Party will control several of the most important ministries.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov met with US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on the sidelines of the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) Ministerial Council meeting in Vienna on Thursday.
Crises on the Korean Peninsula, Ukraine and Syria reportedly topped the agenda of the talks between Lavrov and Tillerson.
When asked his opinion on the US’ decision to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, Lavrov responded “I can’t hear you.”
