The draft treaty with the United States contains 8 points. Article 4, as evaluated – crucial for Moscow – states: “The United States of America undertakes to exclude any further eastward expansion of NATO and to refuse to accept the states formerly belonging to the USSR for the alliance.”

The United States rejects Russia’s proposals for NATO expansion

On Friday in Geneva, US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken and Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov discussed the dangers of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and the Kremlin’s proposals for NATO. The US State Department had previously declared, and Blinken repeated on Friday, that these Russian proposals were unacceptable.

An agreement to limit the admission of new members to the alliance would be in contravention of Article 10 of NATO’s founding treaty. It states that the organization can accept into its group any European country that applies to it and can contribute to increasing the security of the North Atlantic region and be able to meet the specific conditions of the member states – clarifies the Palestinian Authority.
