“I do not expect big breakthroughs,” RIA Novosti quotes an American diplomat.

He added that many intensive negotiations have been held with the Russian side lately.

According to Blinken, this time it will be possible to see what conclusions Russia and the United States have drawn for themselves.

“Hopefully we will find out whether Russia is really interested in resolving differences through dialogue and diplomacy or not,” he said.

The US Secretary of State also stated that the United States is interested in working with Russia to combat the COVID-19 pandemic, address climate change issues and new technologies.

At the same time, the new draft of American sanctions provides for the recognition of Russia as a state sponsor of terrorism.
