However, hopes that Mr Trump will soon act on his campaign pledges to boost relations have faded as any ties to Moscow have become toxic.

Deputy foreign minister Sergei Ryabkov will meet U.S. undersecretary of state Thomas Shannon to try to thrash out a solution on Monday.

Moscow expects the United States to exhibit political wisdom and will in resolving the dispute over the seized Russian diplomatic property in NY and Maryland, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Monday.

Former president Barack Obama ordered their seizure in December as well as the expulsion of 35 Russian diplomats.

Lavrov, speaking during a visit to Belarus, said that what he called USA attempts to set preconditions amounted to "daylight robbery".

The public objection was rare for Netanyahu, who has sought to avoid confrontation with Moscow and Washington over Syria.


According to Sputnik, a senior official from the White House said Washington is going to give back Russia's diplomatic properties only under the condition that it will receive something in return from Moscow.

He declined to discuss what steps Russian Federation would take if the meeting between Ryabkov and Shannon failed to resolve the row.

"We have already noted that we deem it absolutely unacceptable to set any conditions for the return of the diplomatic property. We consider that it must be returned without any conditions and talking", he said.

Lavrov, on a visit to Belarus, was also cited as saying that "anti-Russian feeling" in the United States meant it was not certain that Moscow and Washington could agree on key global issues.

United States intelligence services believe Russian Federation ordered cyber attacks on the Democratic National Committee (DNC), Hillary Clinton's campaign and other political organizations, in an attempt to influence the election in favor of the Republican candidate, Donald Trump.

The talks between Ryabkov and Shannon, the undersecretary for political affairs, had been scheduled for June but Russian Federation cancelled them, citing new USA sanctions linked to the conflict in Ukraine.
