Russia and the United States should strengthen economic relations as the much-heralded “reset” in bilateral ties cannot continue indefinitely, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.

Russia and the United States should strengthen economic relations as the much-heralded “reset” in bilateral ties cannot continue indefinitely, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.

“If we speak about the ‘reset’, it becomes clear, with account for the computer-related origin of this term, that it cannot last forever, otherwise it is not a ‘reset’ but a program failure,” Lavrov said in an interview with the Kommersant business daily published on Wednesday.

“Instead of dwelling on the name of this or that stage, we had better think of how to develop our relations. Or, if we speak the language of computer specialists, to update software,” he said.

Lavrov praised bilateral economic cooperation and added that the deeper it is, the less the relations between the two countries will depend on changes in the political situation.
