MOSCOW, December 2. /TASS/. A new spiral of NATO expansion directly affects Russia's interests and provokes a response, the Foreign Ministry said in a commentary released on Wednesday over NATO's invitation to Montenegro to join the US-led alliance.
"We regard the decision adopted at a meeting of the NATO Council held at the level of foreign ministers in Brussels on December 1-2 that approves beginning of the talks with Montenegro about its accession to the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation as an openly confrontational step fraught with additional destabilising consequences for the system of Euro-Atlantic security," the foreign ministry said.
