Putin Told Biden in Tuesday’s Call He’s Prepared to Satisfy in Person
Putin and Biden spoke on a two-hour video call recently, in which the Russian said he ‘d be prepared for an in-person meeting, according to footage revealed on the Rossiya-1 television channel on Sunday.
” In the absence of de-escalation and taking the diplomatic path, appears pretty unlikely,” U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken said on NBC’s “Fulfill journalism” on Sunday.
Russia’s release of soldiers and military equipment on Ukraine’s border have pushed revived worries of war to the top of the G-7’s program.
Biden on Saturday alerted Russia of “devastating” financial penalties if it assaults Ukraine and stated more U.S. and NATO soldiers would be sent to safeguard allies. Separately, U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen consulted with her German equivalent on Friday to go over actions that could “impose severe expenses on Russia’s economy” if required.
The U.S. authorities revealed self-confidence that a broad group of nations, including other G-7 nations, would participate in enforcing expenses if Russia attacks Ukraine.
U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Italian Foreign Minister Luigi Di Maio, who met on the margins of the G-7 conference, renewed their support for Ukraine’s sovereignty and called on Russia to “decrease stress and go back to diplomacy,” State Department spokesman Ned Cost stated on Saturday.
G-7 members concur that changing European borders by force would have “massive political and financial repercussions,” Annalena Baerbock, selected recently as Germany’s very first female foreign minister, stated in comments relayed on ARD tv.
