Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov is holding a press conference following a meeting of the UN Security Council in New York, according to Sputnik.

In the conference, he said that Moscow was ready for dialogue with Washington despite claims that the US faced growing threats from revisionist powers, including Russia and China, outlined in the new National Security Strategy of the United States.

Russian Foreign Minister expressed hopes that the United States would eventually realize the need to develop relations with Moscow, including in the security sphere.

Responding to a reporter's question on the Iran nuclear deal, Lavrov said that if "any party stepped out of the deal, the accord would simply fall apart."
