ANKARA (Reuters) - Russia’s foreign minister, Sergei Lavrov, said on Tuesday that new U.S. sanctions against Ankara and Moscow were an illegitimate policy and a way for the United States to obtain an unfair competitive advantage in global trade.

Lavrov was speaking at a joint press conference with his Turkish counterpart Mevlut Cavusoglu in Ankara.
