If Washington sets conditions for return of Russian diplomatic property it seized it would be “daylight robbery,” Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said.
Lavrov was referring to a RIA Novosti report on Monday which cited a high-ranking unnamed White House official as saying that the US is not planning to return the diplomatic property to Russia without asking for “something in return.”
“Is that source [the high-ranking official] anonymous?” Lavrov asked, while speaking to journalists on Monday. “So, I believe that their conscience is unclear. As for the issue [not returning the Russian diplomatic property without any preconditions], I consider it daylight robbery,” he said.
“It looks like some highway thieves are commenting on this situation,” Lavrov added.
