Borrell: No talks on Ukraine while Russia exerts pressure

“Russia [karspēka] The relocation is part of the pressure, “Borrell told reporters ahead of the meeting of EU defense and foreign ministers, insisting that” there must be no pressure to negotiate. “

The informal meeting takes place shortly after intense talks between US and Russian officials in Geneva on Monday, during which no agreement was reached on the de-escalation of the conflict, but both sides offered to continue the dialogue.

“We have received assurances that nothing will be decided or negotiated without Europeans, and coordination with the Americans is absolutely excellent,” Borel said.

Before the EU ministerial meeting on Thursday, Borrell said that “no decisions will be made today because this is an informal meeting”. He also admitted that there could be a political statement.

For several weeks, tensions over the concentration of Russian troops on Ukraine’s borders have subsided, raising concerns about another Russian invasion in Kiev and the West.
