Washington wants to build more stable and predictable relations with Moscow and is not looking for escalation, US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken reported.
“If the Russian Federation moves in the present current, then we will also. I believe that President Biden will be able to discuss this directly when meeting with President Putin,” he reported during a press conference in London.
Blinken noted that despite tremendous contradictions, the United States and Russia extended the strategic START-3 treaty.
“We will find other opportunities for cooperation, but it depends on what Russia wants to do,” the Secretary of State said.
Blinken added that the United States will “closely monitor” the actions and policies of Moscow. If Russia behaves “recklessly or aggressively”, the States will respond, the Secretary of State emphasized.
