Russian Ambassador to Washington Anatoly Antonov says there is progress in the Russian-U.S. dialogue on the Arctic issues and climate agenda,
“We started a professional conversation on such very difficult issues as strategic stability and cyber security.
“There is some progress on the Arctic and climate. The economic dialogue continues.
“Contacts are developing along the lines of the heads of foreign affairs agencies, heads of state security councils, chiefs of general staffs of the armed forces,’’ Antonov said on Thursday, November 18, 2021.
Visits of U.S. Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs Victoria Nuland and CIA Director William Burns to Moscow, as well as Russian Deputy Prime Minister Alexei Overchuk’s visit to Washington, were useful, according to Antonov.
