Following Chancellor Olaf Schulz’s meeting with US President Joe Biden and other Western leaders, the German government announced that they had agreed to “keep the door of diplomacy open” with Russia.
“The leaders unanimously agreed that the risk of Russia attacking Ukraine is realistic. It was agreed that Russia should refrain from provocations and escalate tensions, and that the United States and its allies should take a serious stance on their proposals for negotiations,” the German government spokesman said. Steffen Hebechstriet noted.
The spokesperson added that the callers believed that “the main task now is to keep the door of diplomacy open” and that Russia’s response to the US message on security in Europe should be evaluated from this perspective.
Germany emphasized that the Minsk agreements on the settlement of Ukraine should be implemented with the support of Germany and France and within the framework of the Normandy Quartet.
The spokesperson noted that Western countries “reaffirm their solidarity and support for Ukraine and are ready to take a decision on extreme measures if Russia’s aggression against Ukraine continues.”
It is noteworthy that Russia has repeatedly emphasized that it is not planning any “attack” on Ukraine, and rejects Western accusations in this regard.
