TALLINN, May 26 (Itar-Tass) —— The legislators of Russia and NATO member-countries disagree over ways of settling the situation in Syria and resolving the Iranian problem, the chief Russian delegate, State Duma member Vladimir Komoyedov, told the media on Friday. Komoyedov is leading Russia’s delegation at the ongoing session of NATO’s Parliamentary Assembly.
“There are two stumbling blocks – Syria and Iran,” Komoyedov said after a meeting of the NATO-Russia parliamentary commission, held behind closed doors. “We are against a rerun of what happened in Libya. The country was bombed, and nobody knows where it will go further. Any sort of democracy is unheard of there.
As multi-faceted and controversial is the Iranian problem, “including the nuclear component, Iran’s nuclear program.”
Taking part in the session of the NATO’s Parliamentary Assembly, which will last till May 28 are about 300 legislators from 28 member-countries of the alliance and about as many representatives of international organizations, the bloc’s partner states having the status of associated members and observers.
They are considering the construction of a “smart defense” in the light of the ideas produced at the NATO summit in Chicago, cyber security, the situation in the Arab East and NATO’s relations with Russia.
