US tells Russia NATO won’t stop expanding

US Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman has told reporters that Russia’s proposed limit on the expansion of NATO further into Eastern Europe is a “non-starter.” However, she said that progress in talks with Moscow is possible.

Sherman on Monday met with Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov in Geneva, Switzerland. Called to discuss a series of security proposals offered to the US and NATO by Moscow, the Cold War-style meeting lasted more than seven hours.

Afterwards, Sherman told reporters that the pair found some room for progress. She said that US officials are “open to discussing” the size and scope of NATO military exercises in Europe “on a reciprocal basis,” and suggested that the US could alter its placement of missiles in Europe to better accommodate Russian security concerns.
