"In this regard, we take note of the proposal on this crucial issue that Russia mentioned, about which we should continue to have in-depth discussions. We continue to expect detailed information on this proposal from the Russian side", the foreign office said.
The ministry also urged the US and Russia to agree upon extending the NewSTART (Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty) after February 2021.
Earlier this week, the Kremlin confirmed again that Russia is determined to end the use of intermediate and short-range missiles provided there are no US missiles of the same kind in the wake of new threats to European security. Putin also said that Russia is ready to continue to refrain from using 9M729 missiles in European Russia, given NATO adopts reciprocal measures.
In 2019, US President Donald Trump unilaterally withdrew from the INF agreement despite repeated calls from Moscow and the rest of the world, including France, to renegotiate the matter.
