US Ambassador spoke about the prospects for the adoption of Russian security requirements

Washington seeks predictable and stable relations with Russia, but it will not compromise its principles and values, showing firmness together with its American allies and partners, the American diplomat said in an interview with Kommersant. Sullivan noted that he does not regard the Russian demands as an ultimatum, he would not at all want to characterize these fears in one way or another. “My position and many other high-ranking officials in the White House is that we believe that we have a chance to make progress in discussing the issues raised by the Russian side,” he added, stressing that such discussions can most effectively take place against the background of de-escalation on the Russian-Ukrainian border. According to US Ambassador to Russia John Sullivan, the White House is ready to discuss the Moscow-proposed security guarantee initiative, which was formalized in writing. Истoчник www.mk.ru
