LONDON (AP) — Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov says differences remain between Moscow and the U.S. following negotiations in London aimed at ending the crisis in Ukraine.

Lavrov met with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Friday about Ukraine, whose strategic Crimea region is voting this weekend on whether to secede.

After several hours of talks, Lavrov said the talks were useful but that there is “no common” vision between Russia and the U.S.

He also told reporters that Russia has no plans to invade southeastern Ukraine.
