MINSK, November 30. /TASS/. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has said he regrets the statement made by US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, in which he blamed Moscow for almost every external issue.
"Rex Tillerson’s recent statement caused me regret, as he blamed Russia for almost all the external issues that the US is facing," Lavrov told reporters. "One could get the impression that Russia should actually apologize for that," he noted.
"I think, these statements stem from the domestic situation in the US," the Russian top diplomat added. Lavrov said that he considered Tillerson to be "a reasonable man," however, he noted that "any reasonable intentions are tested by the Russia-hating Congress, which is a sad thing."
The Russian foreign minister said that the situation concerning relations between the two countries was "frustrating."
