Russia wants to 'reset' relations with US, says Sergei Lavrov
September 29 , 2014
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has said Russia seeks to “reset” its troubled relations with the US.
Lavrov, in an interview with Russian Channel Five, blamed western countries for triggering the conflict in eastern Ukraine, but said Russia was “absolutely interested in normalizing” relations with Europe and the US.
His statements come after US president Barack Obama indicated that US sanctions imposed on Russia could end if the Russian government “changes course” in Ukraine.
