U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry met his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov on the sidelines of a Rome conference on Libya to continue discussions on Ukraine, a senior U.S. official said on Thursday.

It is the second meeting in as many days between Kerry and Lavrov, who also met in Paris on Wednesday to talk about the crisis in Ukraine's Crimean Peninsula.

Earlier, Kerry also met his counterparts from Britain, Germany, Italy and France to discuss the situation in Ukraine and to inform them of U.S. plans to sanction individuals and officials over events in Crimea.
