NATO Secretary General: Russian rhetoric indicates the risk of military conflict in Europe, dialogue is important
NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said that the military potential and rhetoric of Russia, as well as the events in Georgia in 2008 and in Ukraine in 2014, indicate the risk of a new military conflict in Europe. With this opinion, he spoke during a press conference, which was broadcast on the website of the alliance.
“But that is why it is so important for us to enter into dialogue and sit down at the negotiating table. And for this reason, I welcome the fact that Russia wishes to host a meeting of the NATO-Russia Council. This is at least a positive signal, ”Stoltenberg said. He promised that the alliance would act in good faith and heed the concerns of the Russian side.
