Russia's Lavrov threatens counter actions over Dacha row

AP  |  Brussels 

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov is threatening "counter actions" against the United States over the lingering dispute centering on a pair of Russian diplomatic compounds that the United States seized last year.

A month after Donald Trump's victory, President seized the Cold War-era recreational estates and expelled 35 Russian officials.

Trump and Russian President discussed the issue at the Group of 20 summit in last week.

After meetings at European Union headquarters today, Lavrov said Moscow was "still hopeful that the US, as a proponent of the rule of law, will finally respect the international obligations."

He continued: "If this is not the case, if decides not to solve this issue, we will have to take counter actions."

Lavrov refused to elaborate.
