Peskov called a series of talks with the United States and NATO on security unsuccessful

“The negotiations were initiated to & nbsp; get concrete answers to & nbsp; specific policy questions. And & nbsp; on & nbsp; disagreements were recorded. This is bad, it can only be counted in & nbsp; minus the two rounds held & raquo;, & nbsp; & mdash; Peskov said.

He noted that there were some positive moments, but they were not the main goal of the consultations.

According to & nbsp; he said, & nbsp; Russia never & nbsp; had a lack of political will to & nbsp; continue negotiations with & nbsp; USA & nbsp; & mdash; the American side did not & nbsp; want to negotiate. Peskov said that & nbsp; negotiations will continue if a result is obtained on & nbsp; fundamental issues, a concrete answer.

& & nbsp; & & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; and & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; the second round, as far as we & nbsp; understood, we & nbsp; expect in & nbsp; within the days to come any & nbsp; specific written formulations & raquo;, & nbsp; & mdash; added & nbsp; he.

On December 17, the Russian Foreign Ministry published draft agreements with the & nbsp; USA and & nbsp; agreements with & nbsp; NATO military alliance on & nbsp; guarantees and & nbsp; security. In & nbsp; in particular, the documents suggest a refusal to & nbsp; deployment of medium and & nbsp; short-range ground-based missiles outside the alliance's territory and & nbsp; refusal to & nbsp; expand the military bloc to & nbsp; east, closer to & nbsp; Russian borders.

First Deputy Secretary of State of the United States Wendy Sherman previously stated that & nbsp; part of Russia's proposals for & nbsp; security guarantees are “ no-go. '' Consultations between Moscow and & nbsp; Washington in the & nbsp; framework of the proposals of the Russian side took place on January 10 & nbsp; in & nbsp; Geneva. On & nbsp; the next day, US Permanent Representative to NATO Julianne Smith in an & nbsp; interview with CNN said that & nbsp; there were no great opportunities for & nbsp; a compromise with & nbsp; & nbsp; Russia on & nbsp; the issue of non-expansion of the NATO alliance.
