United States Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel excluded the possibility of any military engagement between Russia and the US over the situation in Ukraine, the CNN reported.
“We’re not going to get into a military engagement, a war, over this with Russia,” Hagel said as quoted by the CNN.
Apart from that, Hagel defended the US response to the Ukraine conflict and dismissed any criticism about Washington’s failure in reaching a diplomatic solution to the crisis.
Chuck Hagel stated that Russia continues to take “very dangerous escalatory actions” with regards to Ukraine.
Meanwhile, NATO is beginning a two-day summit in Wales that is expected to focus on the problems in eastern Ukraine and approve a plan to bolster NATO's presence along the alliance's eastern borders.
NATO says the separatists are supported by the Kremlin, a charge Moscow has repeatedly denied.
