NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg: the alliance has made it clear that it is ready for dialogue with Russia
NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, in an interview with The Washington Post, said that the North Atlantic Alliance has made it clear that it is ready for dialogue with Russia. The interview with Stoltenberg is published on YouTube.
Commenting on the current situation, the interlocutor of the publication expressed the opinion that the military buildup by Russia is “inexplicable and unjustified.” “It is Russia that should explain it, [begin] de-escalation and start a serious political dialogue with NATO and its allies. We have made it clear that we are ready for it,” the Secretary General stressed.
Stoltenberg admitted that he considers the holding of the Russia-NATO Council to be the right step towards relieving tensions and finding a political solution.
Earlier, Russia’s permanent representative to the UN Vasily Nebenzia pointed out that Western countries have not provided evidence that Russia is allegedly preparing an invasion of Ukraine. “Russia’s military action against Ukraine, which, as they [Western countries] convince everyone, is only a matter of weeks, if not days away. At the same time, no evidence is provided to support such serious accusations,” the diplomat stressed.
