MOSCOW – British Defence minister Ben Wallace told his Russian counterpart Sergei Shoigu he hoped they could use their meeting in Moscow to resolve a number of issues through diplomacy.

“I hope that by speaking today and starting that relationship, that was at 0%, we can resolve a number of the issues that you’ve raised,” Wallace said at the start of their meeting.

“(That) we can address some of the issues raised in Russia’s draft treaty … and we can try and move on to where we can resolve our issues together through diplomacy, through other actions, and through confidence building measures.”
