Moscow hopes that the issue of Russia's diplomatic property seized by the United States will be settled in a civilized manner, according to the Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Moscow hopes that the issue of Russia's diplomatic property seized by the United States will be settled in a civilized manner, the spokeswoman of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, said on Friday.

"We assume that this issue can be solved in a civilized way, within the framework of the law and probably humanly, given the emotions roiling in Washington," Zakharova said on air of the "60 Minutes" program on Rossiya 1 television channel.

She added that Russia had "different ways" to settle the issue, and that it would not give up its interests.

In December 2016, Washington imposed a number of restrictive measures on Russia over Moscow’s alleged meddling in the US presidential election, including sanctions against several Russian individuals and entities, as well as the expulsion of 35 Russian diplomats and the closure of two Russian diplomatic compounds in the United States.

On Tuesday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said that Moscow would take retaliatory measures against Washington if the situation with Russia's diplomatic property in the United States was not resolved. Also on Tuesday, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov told Sputnik that Moscow had prepared a "tough" response to the United States' move, among other options.
