Lavrov: 'No positive reaction' from US on NATO's expansion

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov declared on Thursday that the United States did not have a "positive reaction" regarding the question of NATO's eastward expansion.

"On the main question in this document (from the US), there is no positive reaction. The main question is our clearly stated position about the admissibility of further expansion of NATO to the east and deployment of strike weapons that could threaten the territory of the Russian Federation," stated Lavrov.

Yesterday, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken expressed that Russia will decide how to respond, adding that the US document establishes a serious diplomatic path forward "should Russia choose it."
