Back in December, Russian President Vladimir Putin decided not to respond to sanctions imposed by the outgoing US administration and act in accordance with the ties built with the new US leadership.
"The situation is outrageous, I believe that this is just shameful to leave the situation in such a limbo for such a great country as the United States, a champion of international law," Lavrov told reporters.
"Naturally, we will work for the truth to prevail, justice and international law must be restored. We are thinking about specific steps now, and I do not think we need to publicly discuss this, with all due respect to the media," Lavrov told reporters.
Earlier, Lavrov said summing up the results of a meeting of Russian President Vladimir Putin and his US counterpart Donald Trump in Germany's Hamburg that Moscow will pursue justice in the issue of the Russian diplomatic property in the US.
The Donald Trump administration is reportedly currently considering the return of the two facilities. According to a source, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov will meet with US Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs Thomas Shannon next week to discuss the issue of Russian diplomatic property in the United States.
