Russia does not “interfere in the domestic matters” of other countries, Sergei Lavrov said on Thursday.

The Russian foreign minister’s comments came at the start of his first meeting with US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on the margins of a G20 meeting in Bonn.

President Trump has called for better relations with the Kremlin and Tillerson and Lavrov’s talks are the highest face-to-face discussions between Washington and Moscow since the new US administration took charge.
