Secretary of State John Kerry presented two large Idaho potatoes as a gift for Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov during a meeting in Paris on Monday.
John Kerry said Sergei Lavrov had mentioned Idaho’s most famous export the last time they met.
Russia’s foreign minister seemed to appreciate the gesture, smiling and remarking that the gifts were “impressive.”
The US and Russian delegations were in Paris along with Syrian opposition groups ahead of UN-led Geneva II peace talks in Switzerland next week.
