"We look into the future with optimism and are ready for cooperation on all fronts", he said.

The U.S. and Russia have been at odds over a number of issues including Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, Russian actions in Syria and its 2014 annexation of Crimea.

Trump's priority is to protect Americans and American interests, including those of USA allies, he said.

Russia's foreign minister Sergei Lavrov told a delegation of US lawmakers he hoped their visit to Moscow would help restore relations between the two legislatures, Interfax news agency reported. The lawmakers were joined for the meeting with Lavrov by U.S. Ambassador Jon Huntsman.

Trump National Security Advisor John Bolton said Sunday that he had already spoken to Putin about Crimea, telling CBS's Face the Nation that he told him "we're going to have to agree to disagree on Ukraine". Kislyak is now a member of Russia's upper house of parliament.

Experts have warned that the meeting could have potentially massive consequences, as Putin has been described as a "very disciplined negotiator" who may be able to extract major concessions from Trump. And we don't want anybody tampering with elections.

For his part, Trump has left open the question of changing the US position on Crimea.

Sen. Richard Shelby of Alabama said he raised the sensitive topic.

The White House said on Monday that the United States does not recognize Russia's alleged "attempt" on Crimea, and its sanctions on Russian Federation will remain in place. 'It was simply a denial on their part that it occurred, ' he said.

Seven U.S. senators recently went to Moscow, possibly the largest congressional delegation to visit since the creation of the Russian Republic in the early 1990s, Huntsman said.

Just last week, he trumpeted a Putin talking point, tweeting: "Russia continues to say they had nothing to do with Meddling in our Election!"
