Stoltenberg and Scholz

At the meetings, it is proposed to discuss issues of European security and the situation on the border with Ukraine.

NATO invited Russia to hold new meetings with Western countries on topics of concern. This was announced on Tuesday, January 18, by the Secretary General of the alliance at a meeting with German Chancellor Olaf Scholz.

“NATO allies are ready to meet with Russia again. Today I invited Russia and all NATO allies to take part in a series of meetings within the Russia-NATO Council in the near future,” he said.

In particular, at these meetings they want to find a way to prevent any military action against Ukraine.

They can also discuss transparency in the military sphere and arms control.

“We are also ready to resume mutual briefings on exercises and our doctrines on nuclear weapons,” Stoltenberg added.

As is known, a number of talks between Western countries and Russia on security guarantees took place last week. The Kremlin considers the negotiations unsuccessful.

It was also reported that The United States did not expect breakthroughs from negotiations with Russia. Washington is ready to continue dialogue with Russia on security guarantees, but this will depend on the situation around Ukraine.
