MOSCOW - Moscow wants to improve ties with Washington and is not interested in a continued "sanctions war" with the West, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.

In an interview with Russia's Channel 5 TV, Lavrov said relations needed a "reset 2.0", referring to a previous US attempt to mend bilateral ties that has been undermined by a series of confrontations, most recently over Ukraine.

He said Russia did not feel isolated from the West but accused Washington of hurting their relationship and of applying double standards in the struggle against "terrorism".
