US President Joe Biden has informed the leaders of France, Germany, Italy and Britain about the negotiations with Russian President Vladimir Putin. The UNN writes about it with reference to the message of the White House.
"President Biden briefed the leaders on his talks with President Putin, in which he discussed the serious consequences of Russian military action in Ukraine and the need to de-escalate and return to diplomacy. The leaders stressed their support for Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity and the need for Russia to de-escalate tensions and engage in diplomacy," the report said.
The sides reportedly agreed that their teams would maintain close contact, including in consultation with NATO allies and EU partners, on a coordinated and comprehensive approach.
Recall that on December 7, Russian and U.S. Presidents Vladimir Putin and Joe Biden held bilateral talks in a teleconference format.
Joe Biden told Vladimir Putin that if Russia invades Ukraine, the United States will strengthen the eastern flank of NATO, as well as provide Kiev with more military aid.
On December 9, Joe Biden will call Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelensky.
