Moscow is keen on stabilizing its relationship with the United States, but with Washington's actions it will require another reset, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.

"The main problem is that we are absolutely interested in normalizing these relations but it was not us who ruined them. And what is needed now is what Americans will probably call a reset," he said in an interview with Channel 5 on Saturday.

Washington's actions are ruining the possibility of cooperation with Moscow, the minister said.

"Already the current administration is ruining cooperation structures it has mostly created itself, jointly with us," the Russian foreign minister said.

"Probably, they'll think up something else: a reset number two or a reset 2.0," Lavrov said.
