BRUSSELS, January 18 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia and NATO approved a “road map” for cooperation against sea piracy and terrorism until 2014.
“We must understand every country’s actions,” chief of the Russian Army General Staff, General of the Army Nikolai Makarov said after a meeting of the Russia-NATO Council at the level of chiefs of the General Staff on Wednesday, January 18.
“Today we resolved many questions we and NATO countries had,” he added.
“We are positive about long-term military-to-military cooperation and approved a ‘road map’ for the Russia-NATO Council’s key areas of cooperation in 2012-2014: logistics, the fight against sea piracy and terrorism, search and rescue at sea, military academic exchanges, missile defence,” the general said.
“Missile defence remains the main stumbling block. Prospects for our further cooperation will depend primarily on whether we can come to agreement on missile defence and how,” Makarov said.
“We believe that the main task for cooperation between Russia and NATO now is to foster a new level of trust in the field of military security, expand contacts, and joint response to challenges outside of Europe. There are enough examples of them. These factors are important elements of our further military-to-military cooperation,” he said.
