The group’s next meeting is scheduled for next month and will be the first time the two leaders have met in person since the war in Ukraine began on February 24.

Speaking on state television, Lavrov said Russia was ready to listen to any suggestions on peace talks, but could not say in advance what the process would lead to.

The minister accused the US of involvement in the conflict. Lavrov also noted that the US has been at war in Ukraine for a long time.

“It seems to me that Americans have been really engaged in this war for a long time,” the president said. “This war is controlled by the Anglo-Saxons,” he added.

Moscow rejected the talks. Officials, including White House national security spokesman John Kirby, said Lavrov said the United States was open to talks but that Russia had refused.

“This is a lie,” declared Lavrov. “We have no serious offers to contact.”
