Both Lavrov and Tillerson made mention of plans to establish a working group with representatives from the State Department and Russia's foreign ministry with the goal of improving relations between the two nations.
Following a "very frank" meeting with Vladimir Putin on Wednesday, Tillerson admitted the relationship between Russian Federation and the United States is at a "low point", characterized by mistrust, the Hill reports.
Tillerson and Lavrov are expected to hold a news conference that begins soon.
The two were tasked with finding any common ground on the crisis in Syria.
The powers are at odds over the fate of Moscow's longtime ally President Bashar al-Assad, a rift exacerbated after an alleged Syrian chemical attack last week that triggered a punitive USA missile strike. Russia wants the U.S.to eliminate sanctions on Moscow related to its 2014 annexation of Ukraine's Crimea region and support for pro-Russian separatists in eastern Ukraine. "We have said that there need to be a very thorough investigation into this incident, which has become the subject of many speculations", Lavrov said.
Assad said on Thursday the alleged poison gas attack in Khan Sheikhoun was a "fabrication" to justify a United States military strike.
Earlier on Wednesday Tillerson had a similar tone after an nearly two-hour meeting with Putin, saying the two countries had reached a "low point" in relations.

He said U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is considering the request. But any such expectations have crashed into reality amid the nasty back-and-forth over Syria and ongoing USA investigations into Russia's alleged interference in America's US presidential election.
