“Biden stated that negotiations would only be possible after Putin leaves Ukraine,” which Moscow “obviously” rejects, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.
The Kremlin on Friday rejected the conditions set for negotiations with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin by US President Joe Biden, who said on Thursday that such a thing would only be possible after Moscow withdraws its troops from Ukraine.
“Biden stated that negotiations would only be possible after Putin leaves Ukraine,” which Moscow “obviously” rejects, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said. “The United States still does not recognize the new territories (s.s. annexed) as part of the Russian Federation, and of course this greatly complicates the search for common ground for dialogue,” the Russian official said.
“The military operation continues”Peskov declared about the undeclared Russian war in Kyiv.
However, Peskov added that: “the president of the Russian Federation has always been, is and remains open to negotiations in order to secure our interests.”
“The preferred way to achieve our interests is through peaceful, diplomatic means,” the Kremlin spokesman noted. “Putin was, is and remains open to contacts and negotiations,” he concluded.
