MOSCOW — Russia is ready for comprehensive dialogue with the United States, particularly due to the rise of global security concerns, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Friday.

"The Russian president said that we are ready for dialogue with the United States... but only for comprehensive dialogue," Peskov said, adding that such talks are necessary as problems continue to mount, especially in relation to the global security architecture.

Such dialogue would need to be broad and comprehensive and cover all spheres, including the current Ukrainian crisis and "the direct involvement of the United States in this conflict," the Kremlin spokesman said.

Peskov further noted that Russia's cooperation with its partners "is in no way directed against third countries," and is ultimately only aimed at improving the wellbeing of the peoples of those countries.
