The State Department disclosed details of preliminary negotiations between the Russian Federation and the United States of America on the so-called “security guarantees.” 

Ned Price’s commentary is posted on the State Department website .

On January 9, First US Undersecretary of State Wendy Sherman met with Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov in Geneva. 

“The Deputy Secretary of State emphasized the United States’ commitment to international principles of sovereignty, territorial integrity and the freedom of sovereign nations to choose their own alliances,” the statement said.

Sherman also said the US would welcome “genuine progress” through diplomacy.

According to her, they will discuss certain bilateral issues with Russia, but will not discuss European security without their European allies and partners.

Ryabkov told RIA Novosti that the preliminary part of the talks “went amazingly.”

“The conversation was difficult, but businesslike, we plunged into the matter of the upcoming affairs. I think that tomorrow we will not waste time. I never lose my optimism, I am always guided by it,” he said.

As UNIAN reported earlier, on January 10,  US and Russian diplomats will hold talks  on security issues in Geneva to discuss the military activities of both countries and the growth of tensions around Ukraine.

On January 12, Brussels will host a meeting of the Russia-NATO Council and on January 13 – a meeting of the OSCE Permanent Council, where relevant issues will be discussed.

Security guarantees for Russia

As UNIAN reported earlier, on December 17,  the Russian Foreign Ministry published a draft treaty between the Russian Federation and the United States on “security guarantees”  and a draft agreement on measures to ensure the security of Russia and the NATO member states. In particular, Russia proposes NATO to refuse to accept Ukraine into NATO, as well as “from any military activity on the territory of Ukraine.” The Russian Federation also offers the United States not to create military bases on the territory of the countries of the former USSR and not to accept these countries into NATO.

On Monday, January 10, a meeting of the Ukraine-NATO Commission will take place in Brussels.

Also on January 10,  US and Russian diplomats will hold  security talks in Geneva to discuss the military activities of both countries and the growing tensions around Ukraine.

On January 12, Brussels will host a meeting of the NATO-Russia Council and on January 13 – a meeting of the OSCE Permanent Council, where relevant issues will be discussed.

  1. I really, really, really want, VERY much, to get a chance some day, and slap those idiots hard in the face. I understand that realistically, I’d never get that chance, but I still want to. ESPECIALLY the idiot-in-chief, biden, and his scheming lackey, harris. This even though she might feel like wanting to poison his tea or something, just to take the presidency for herself. I trust her even less than biden, and that’s saying something.
