The dialog between Russia and the US and NATO should find a way to reduce tension, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said, responding to the question from TASS, APA reports.

"Obviously, I think everybody is concerned with the present escalation of tension, and it is absolutely essential that the dialogue [between Russia and the US and NATO - TASS] that is taking place finds a way allowing for de·escalation of tension," Guterres said.

This is needed "to avoid any kind of confrontation that will be a disaster for Europe and for the world," the UN Secretary-General added.
