White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki declared America's full readiness for any development of the situation and said that now it is Moscow that must decide how to proceed with the security negotiations.
– I can not announce anything about further steps and negotiations. All delegations have now returned to the capitals of their countries and are discussing this … I emphasize that our opinion and the opinion of the president is that now it is up to Putin and Russia to determine what will happen next, Psaki said during a briefing on January 14.
She also added that the United States is “ready for anything that can be decided in Moscow,” and recalled that if the Russian Federation decides on a new invasion of Ukraine, then this will have severe economic consequences.
At the same time, if Moscow returns to the diplomatic way of resolving the situation, then the US is “open to it”.
