Kremlin ready to dialogue with U.S to end Ukraine conflict



Kremlin ready to dialogue with U.S to end Ukraine conflict

The Kremlin has expressed a desire for “comprehensive” talks with the United States, emphasizing that discussions must include the topic of Ukraine, according to Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov.

“It is impossible to rip out any individual segments from the general complex of accumulated problems, and we will not do this,” Peskov stated when questioned about potential nuclear risk talks with Washington.

Peskov underscored the necessity of addressing the broad spectrum of issues, including the ongoing conflict in Ukraine and what Russia perceives as direct U.S. involvement. “We are open to dialogue, but to a broad comprehensive dialogue that covers all dimensions, including the current dimension related to the conflict around Ukraine,” he told reporters.

The United States maintains that any negotiations regarding the war must align with Ukraine’s wishes and rejects Russia’s claim that U.S. military support to Ukraine equates to direct participation in the conflict. The U.S. contends that Russia alone bears responsibility for the war’s continuation, nearly three years after it began.

Peskov highlighted the growing list of topics needing discussion between the two nations, stressing the critical nature of such dialogue. “Overall, this dialogue is very much required,” he said, citing the accumulation of global security issues.

Amid these calls for dialogue, Russia’s actions continue to heighten international tensions. This week, President Vladimir Putin visited North Korea, where he signed a mutual defense agreement with leader Kim Jong Un and indicated a willingness to supply Russian weapons to the regime in response to Western support for Ukraine.

Furthermore, Putin reiterated his consideration of revising Russia’s nuclear weapons doctrine, with the last remaining arms control treaty between Russia and the United States set to expire in 2026. This potential shift adds another layer of complexity to the already strained U.S.-Russia relations.
