Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov is leading the Russian delegation in the talks, while Undersecretary of State Wendy Sherman is leading the US delegation, the TASS news agency reported.
The first of these meetings took place on July 28th at the United Nations headquarters in Geneva, led by Ryabkov and Sherman.
The Russian official acknowledged on that occasion that the approaches of Moscow and Washington do not coincide in everything and that is why those meetings are held.
He stressed that the goal is to start the process and analyze in detail where the parties have differences, while trying to find areas of joint work, where there is some perspective.
The talks are an extension of the agreements reached at the June 16th summit between President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin and his US counterpart Joe Biden.
Moscow has criticized in recent years Washington’s abandonment of the most important international agreements on strategic nuclear stability, however President Vladimir Putin highlighted earlier this year the signing by the United States of the extension of the Treaty on the Reduction and Limitation of Strategic Offensive Arms (Start III) for a period of five years.
