An official Russian delegation arrived in the Swiss city of Geneva for bilateral negotiations with the United States on security guarantees, the Russian Foreign Ministry reported.

"An interdepartmental delegation from Russia, chaired by the Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Riabkov, arrived in Geneva to participate in the Russian-American negotiations on security guarantees," the Foreign Ministry published on the social network Telegram.

In this sense, the diplomat declared before the start of the meeting in Geneva that the Kremlin is "disappointed" by the signals coming from both Washington and Brussels, where the NATO headquarters are located.

"We will not accept any concessions. It is totally out of the question," Riabkov, who is part of the negotiating team, told Russian agencies.

The high-level meeting marks the start of a week-long diplomatic marathon, during which Russia will meet with NATO and also with the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE).

On the other hand, the Secretary of State of the United States assured that the delegations of Russia and the United States could lay the foundations to reestablish the Treaty on Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces.

"It is possible that the foundations will be laid for the reestablishment of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty with Russia," Blinken said in an interview with ABC television.

At the same time, the diplomat made it clear that in the consultations the US delegation will only negotiate on the scale of maneuvers in Eastern Europe and not the number of US troops.
