Biden announces NATO-Russia meeting

According to Biden, the date of the meeting is announced closer to & nbsp; Friday, December 10 & nbsp;. The priority issue on the agenda will be to study the possibility of providing Russia with security guarantees on & nbsp; about the actions of the North Atlantic Alliance.

“ The positive news is that & nbsp; up to & nbsp; our teams have maintained constant contact. We & nbsp; hope that & nbsp; by & nbsp; & nbsp; we can announce high-level meetings & nbsp;. Not & nbsp; only with & nbsp; us, but & nbsp; at least with & nbsp; four of our key allies in & nbsp; NATO and & nbsp; Russia to discuss the future on & nbsp; about Russia's concerns about NATO, and & nbsp; also whether & nbsp; can & nbsp; be able to & nbsp; any & nbsp; agreements on reducing tensions on the & nbsp; eastern flank & raquo;, & nbsp; & mdash; the American president told reporters.

Earlier, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that & nbsp; NATO's expansion to the & nbsp; east is one of the & nbsp; most important security issues of Russia on the & nbsp; strategic agenda. In Putin's & nbsp; opinion, NATO is clearly pursuing a confrontational line in & nbsp; against Russia. “ For & nbsp; Russia it would be & nbsp; a criminal inaction to watch & nbsp; what is happening around & nbsp; Ukraine's possible entry into & nbsp; NATO & raquo;, & nbsp; & mdash; concluded & nbsp; he.

On December 7 & nbsp; Vladimir Putin and & nbsp; Joe Biden held talks on & nbsp; video communication. Their & nbsp; conversation lasted two hours. One of the & nbsp; main issues of its & nbsp; agenda was the tense situation on the & nbsp; Russian-Ukrainian border.
