MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said there was no new reset in relations with the United States, but that both sides engaged in a pragmatic and realistic dialogue, RIA news agency reported on Tuesday.

Commenting on U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry's recent visit to Russia, Lavrov said he would not characterize that as a new reset.

"I would call it a return to the previous normal level," the agency cited Lavrov as saying in an interview with Bloomberg news agency.
