MOSCOW - Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Sunday he believed his US colleagues were ready to continue dialogue with Moscow on complex issues despite bilateral tensions and the imposition of fresh US sanctions against Russia.

"We felt the readiness of our US colleagues to continue dialog. I think there's no alternative to that," Lavrov said after what he said was a lengthy meeting with US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on the sidelines of an international gathering in Manila.
