NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said on Thursday its readiness to discuss the issue of normalization of relations between the Alliance and Russia.
Costly NATO military. Why does the EU need its own army?
According to him, this issue could be raised at a meeting with Russian foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, which will also discuss specific steps towards rapprochement of Russia, writes RIA FAN.
Recall that NATO unilaterally ceased cooperation with Russia in 2014, after the state coup in Ukraine. The last time the Alliance hears calls for normalization of relations.
In the past, Russia has proposed to NATO countries to exchange views on military-political situation in Europe and to meet this goal in Moscow in September.
