2:03 pm
accept and that they want reassurances that that will not take place. and the russian deputy foreign minister is also said that it's important to continue talks and as long as they do, they will have a chance of de escalating tensions. and in terms of the troops build up a wrong, the russian border with ukraine. the kremlin position is that they are moving their own forces within their own country, and it is their sovereign right to do so. but when it comes to nato expanding and including ukraine, it is something that the russian say is unacceptable. and of course, americans have said that of what the russians are asking for is a non starter and that there is no way they can dictate who cannot, cannot join nato, who has an open door policy to all the countries in the world. ok, thanks for that dosage about that for us in moscow. let's get the perspective from paris and speak to natasha butler. natasha. they have been various attempts to de
2:04 pm
escalate the situation so far. most recently, us talks with russia, which have ended this week with no break through. do we actually expect any progress with nato today? will ask a question. those talks on monday between a u. s. and russian officials ending with no breakthrough, but it has to be said that a hopes of any breakthrough for this meeting in brussels between nato members and russian senior negotiators are extremely low. the mood is far from optimistic. in fact, one kremlin spokesperson said that there was very little room for optimism. and the real reason is that you have 2 sides on one side, nato, on one side, russia and their positions have only become even more deeply entrenched. if you like. on one side, you have russia saying that it wants nato to store its eastern woods expansion. it doesn't want ukraine to ever become a member of nato. on the other side,
2:05 pm
you have nato say, well, that's just unacceptable. in fact, the a, u. s. sam baset her to nato on tuesday, said that not a single nato member would agree to have the terms of nato membership dictated in such a way. so you have to very opposing viewpoints. even though this is perhaps the most significant of the many meetings that are taking place this week, her we heard from you and so to both as well, the secretary general of nato, before this meeting. and he actually said that he thought a good out come would be an agreement to continue talking. so he's sessing the ball pretty low. you have to say a more talks i seems to be, where are these this meeting is going? that seems to be the possible result or outcome of this meeting and both side saying more talks in the future at least as some a way of moving forward, even though it seems and nobody's talking about any great breakthroughs at this
