Sergei Lavrov chided the US administration two days after President Barack Obama scrapped a summit with Mr Putin when Russia  granted asylum to Edward Snowden, the fugitive US spy.
“We need to work as grown-ups,” he told a press conference in Washington alongside John Kerry, the US Secretary of State. “This is what we do. And we hope that this will be reciprocal”.
Mr Obama reacted furiously this week to Russia’s approval of temporary asylum for Mr Snowden, a National Security Agency contractor who gave secret documents to the media.
