“President Biden’s approach to Ukraine has been clear and consistent: Join the alliance behind two paths:
deterrence and diplomacy. We are united as an Alliance on the consequences that Russia would face if it moves to Ukraine. But we are also united in our willingness to engage in early diplomacy with Russia, “the NSC spokesman said in a statement.
“The United States expects to engage with Russia in the Strategic Security Dialogue on January 10. In addition, we understand that Russia and NATO intend to hold an NRC meeting on the 12th and that the OSCE PC is scheduled for 13 “.
“When we sit down to talk, Russia can put its concerns on the table, and we will also put our concerns on the table with Russia’s activities. We will adhere to the principle of “Nothing about our allies and partners without our allies and partners,
including Ukraine. ‘ There will be areas where we can move forward and areas where we will disagree. That’s what diplomacy is all about. “
