Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Thursday that the current state of Russia-US relations was alarming.
"There has developed an alarm in the world in connection with the current situation," Lavrov said in a speech at the Carnegie Endowment Centre in Moscow.
He added there was a gap in the foreign policy aspirations of Moscow and Washington.
"Russia will by no means yield to any attempts at idealisation, let alone those coming from outside," Itar-Tassnews agency quoted him as saying.
Lavrovalso said Russia wanted wider discussions on a major arms pact, after talks in Vienna this month ended in deadlock.
"We do not want to bury the CFE," Lavrov said, referring to the 1990Conventional Forces in Europe treaty.
