Lavrov said the sanctions after a meeting with Tillerson

The foreign Minister of the Russian Federation Sergey Lavrov after meeting with Secretary of state of the United States Rex Tillerson said that the theme of anti-Russian sanctions was not discussed.


“No, the question of sanctions was not discussed. We are not discussing sanctions, we believe that this is an anomaly and those sanctions used must evaluate for yourself how effective it is,” said Lavrov.


He also suggested that those who have imposed sanctions to assess whether they meet the normal international interactions, and how the desire to artificially politicize the topic in the interests of States themselves, resorting to such measures.


Tillerson himself has described the meeting with Lavrov quite productive.
