White House National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan said on Friday that the United States believed there was still room for improvement if talks with Russia were “in the right shape.”
“It simply came to our notice then [quinta-feira, 16], The 30 countries of the NATO alliance have made clear in a statement issued by the North Atlantic Council – ready for talks with Russia. […] We can have a discussion in the right format, ”Sullivan said at an event in Washington.
The National Security Adviser has stated that Russia has “put its concerns on the table” about US and NATO actions, and that the United States is prepared to do so, believing that “Russian actions are detrimental to our interests and values.”
“For the last 20 years we have had a dialogue with Russia on European security issues. We have had this for decades before with the Soviet Union. It has sometimes made progress, sometimes it has created a stalemate, but we are basically ready for dialogue.” Said Sullivan.
He added that although progress was possible in some areas, the two nuclear powers would continue to disagree, without disclosing details of areas in which they might have differences.
At a virtual meeting last week, US President Joe Biden promised Russian President Vladimir Putin that he would impose new sanctions on Moscow in the event of an invasion of Ukraine, including to cut off Russia’s SWIFT tariffs and to block the operation of the North Stream. 2 (northern current 2) gas pipeline, which connects the country with Germany.
The Russian president, on the other hand, questioned NATO’s growing military capability near its borders and asked for assurances that there would be no expansion to the east. (With Sputnik Brazil)
