Deputy Secretary of State Wendy R. Sherman spoke yesterday with Canadian Deputy Foreign Minister Marta Morgan, who represented Canada at the NATO-Russia Council meeting in Brussels. The two pledged continued close coordination to deter further Russian aggression against Ukraine. They also called for Russian de-escalation and underscored their shared commitment to diplomacy.
