Washington's tightening of sanctions won't last long - Lavrov

MOSCOW. Aug 14 (Interfax) - The United States' tightening of sanctions cannot last long, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.

"This policy cannot be the foundation of a normal dialogue. I don't think it will last very long," Lavrov told reporters.

The United States is even punishing its allies with its sanctions, he said.
