U.S. and Russia Set to Discuss Security on January 10th as Ukraine Tensions Mount
The Index Today
Russian and American bureaucrats will be meeting on January 10th to discuss matters regarding national security. This comes in the midst of mounting Russia-Ukraine pressures.
A Biden administration spokesperson has also revealed that a larger meeting is set to take place on January 13th to be attended by Washington, Moscow, and other countries from Europe.
Russia’s recent placement of military corps near Ukraine has raised concerns among Western countries, creating fresh worries about another potential Russian attack following the capture of the Crimea peninsula.
Although Russia seeks sanctions for its security requirements, the U.S. is prepared to issue economic endorsements in the event of another Russian strike on Ukraine.
A spokesperson for the National Security Council of the White House contended, "When we sit down to talk, Russia can put its concerns on the table, and we will put our concerns on the table with Russia's activities as well." They also stated that “there will be areas where we can make progress, and areas where we will disagree. That's what diplomacy is about."
