Moscow (Sputnik) – Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov described the United States’ response to Russia’s security initiatives as unsatisfactory.

He also noted that Moscow called on the US government to take into account Russian security initiatives as a whole.

“We can consider how to move forward, but keep our initiatives from last December as they are, with a general approach,” Lavrov said at a meeting with President Vladimir Putin on proposals to reduce the rapprochement between the United States and NATO with Russia’s borders.

Lavrov called for the continuation and intensification of negotiations with the United States and NATO devoted to security guarantees.

“It seems to me that our capabilities are in no way exhausted, of course we should not continue indefinitely, but at this point I suggest that it should continue and increase,” the foreign minister said.

Lavrov stressed that he saw the possibility of reaching an agreement with the West on security guarantees in the event of hearing Moscow’s proposals.

According to the head of Russian diplomacy, “our continuous explanatory work and dedication to explaining our reasons” will help achieve this goal, as long as “there is a will to listen to some arguments.”

Today, as head of the State Department, it must be said that there is always a possibility” , stressed the head of Russian diplomacy.

At the end of 2021, the Russian Foreign Ministry Published its proposals to the United States and NATO On security guarantees in Europe, in which, in particular, Washington urges a mutual renunciation of the deployment of nuclear weapons outside national territory and the return of those that have already been deployed.
