MOSCOW, May 29. /TASS/. A recent visit by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry to Russia’s Sochi means that Washington has come to realize that it is high time to get over an unhappy period in relations, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Friday.
"Frankly speaking, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry’s visit to Sochi, probably, meant de facto that Washington understands that in the long run we should build bridges and get over the unhappy period in relations which is bringing no good either for us, or for the Americans, or the entire world," he told the International Review programme on the Rossiya-24 television channel.
"We are interested in counteracting terrorism," Lavrov said. "When we met with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and when Kerry met with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Sochi, there was a rather detailed conversation that this task is to be tackled based on a common criterion, without double standards. If a person is a terrorist, he is a terrorist elsewhere.".
