SOCHI, May 12. /TASS/. The Russian and US delegations led by Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and US Secretary of State John Kerry have finished a meeting in Sochi.
The talks continued about four hours. In reply to the query how they had proceeded, Lavrov said "Wonderfully".
Sergey Lavrov has presented John Kerry with a World War Two Victory Day T-shirt and two baskets with potatoes and tomatoes during talks in the Black Sea resort of Sochi, Russia's Foreign Ministry said on its Facebook page on Tuesday.
Kerry "handed over to the Russian side a list of quotes from the Russian media, which, in his opinion, do not reflect the real potential of wide Russian-American relations, which, according to him, need improvement," the ministry said.
Earlier reports said the sides planned to discuss the whole range of issues souring Russian-American ties, the situation in Ukraine, the Middle East and around Iran.
They concern "the situation in the world generally and Russian-American ties with all their problem elements," Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov told Tass ahead of the talks.
"There will be enough time to systematically and profoundly discuss point by point the whole very difficult agenda, which is not improving," the diplomat said.
Before the talks, the two top diplomats laid wreaths at a World War Two memorial.
