"US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) head William Burns did not discuss a potential settlement of the Ukraine conflict during his talks with Russian Foreign Intelligence Service Director Sergey Naryshkin," Charge d'Affaires at the US Embassy in Moscow Elizabeth Rood told RIA Novosti, APA reports.
"The United States has channels for managing risk with the Russian Federation, particularly nuclear risks, and that was the purpose of CIA Director Burns’ meeting with his Russian counterpart. Director Burns did not negotiate anything and he did not discuss a settlement of the conflict in Ukraine," Rood said.
William Burns could hold another meeting with Russian Foreign Intelligence Service Director Sergey Naryshkin, Elizabeth Rood added.
"I am sure if there is a need for another conversation in that channel it can happen, there is not anything scheduled that I know of," Rood said.
