For decades, Psaki said, it has been possible to negotiate strategic issues with Russia. There is no reason why this cannot be done in the future. But we will do so in partnership and coordination with our European allies and partners.
A senior US government official said some things in the Russians’ draft were “unacceptable,” and Moscow knew that, too. She did not comment more specifically and stressed that negotiations on this would not take place in public. After consulting with international partners, suggestions will be made to Russia for further action “sometime next week” and their concerns and concerns will be raised. This must be done on the basis of reciprocity.” She reiterated that the United States and its partners are preparing a package of serious economic and political consequences for Russia should the government there continue its further aggression against Ukraine.
According to the text of nine individual articles published by the Russian Foreign Ministry on Friday, NATO countries should also pledge to refrain from military action on the territory of Ukraine and other countries in eastern Europe, southern Caucasus and Central Asia. Russia is also directly calling on Ukraine to relinquish NATO membership.
Russia has already discussed the proposals in the past few days with representatives of Western countries, including the USA. Putin recently had a video swap with US President Joe Biden. The Kremlin chief also informed French President Emmanuel Macron and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson about Moscow’s demands for security guarantees.
