UK's Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson says UK wants better relations with Russia



Boris Johnson has said the UK's relations with Russia are "not on a good footing" but he wants them to improve, after talks in Moscow.

 
Russia's foreign minister Sergei Lavrov accused the UK of making "insulting" statements ahead of the meeting.


But he said he trusted Mr Johnson and they had agreed on the need to work together on UN Security Council.


Mr Johnson is the first UK foreign secretary to visit Russia in five years.


Mr Lavrov said it was no secret that Britain's relations with Russia were at a "low point".
