Diplomacy

  • US President Joe Biden has warned Russian President Vladimir Putin against using tactical nuclear or chemical weapons in the wake of setbacks in Ukraine. “No. No. No. It would change the face of war like never before since World War II,” he said on 60 Minutes in a clip posted by US broadcaster CBS.
  • When asked about Biden’s comments, RIA Novosti quoted Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov as saying: “Read [Russia’s nuclear] doctrine. Everything is written there.”
  • According to the doctrine, nuclear weapons can be used after “an aggression against Russia or its ally with the use of weapons of mass destruction”, or “when the very existence of the state is under threat”.
  • Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and a war-aggravated global food crisis will be the focus of world leaders as they gather for the United Nations General Assembly this week, a meeting unlikely to produce any progress in ending to the conflict.
