Russia announces position on talks with Washington | news

Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said Friday his country is ready to hold high-level meetings with the United States on strategic stability if Washington agrees.

Official Russian media quoted Ryabkov as saying that Moscow is not ruling out new contacts with Washington after the forthcoming talks in Cairo on the New START nuclear weapons treaty.

Referring to the meeting between Russian Intelligence Director Sergey Naryshkin and CIA Director William Burns that took place a few days ago in Ankara, Ryabkov said that it was requested by the American side and that sensitive issues were discussed.

The Russian official also said that Moscow has nothing to discuss with Washington about Ukraine.

Message on the Consequences of Using Nuclear Weapons

On the other hand, the US National Security Council said that Burns conveyed a message to Naryshkin about the consequences of Russia’s use of nuclear weapons and the risks of escalation for strategic stability, according to Russian media reports.

And yesterday, Russia’s Foreign Ministry said it does not want to cut diplomatic ties with Washington, but will do so if the latter decides it doesn’t need ties with Moscow.

For its part, the Turkish Presidency today said that President Recep Tayyip Erdogan had told his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin that the meeting between US and Russian intelligence services was important to prevent an “uncontrolled” escalation.

US and Russian officials say amid tensions between the two sides over the ongoing conflict in Ukraine, contacts between the two countries are taking place at certain levels to avoid serious incidents.
