MOSCOW, February 5. /TASS/. A number of countries ask not to make public military contacts with Russia because of "harsh commands" from Brussels, Russian Deputy Defense Minister Anatoly Antonov has told reporters.

According to him, "NATO’s multiple attempts to isolate Russia have fallen short of the goal."

"A meeting of the Russian and French defense ministers was held, and later a meeting between the two countries’ General Staff chiefs took place as well. Army General Valery Gerasimov spoke with his US counterpart twice. We received high-ranking delegations from the UK, Germany and Switzerland," Antonov said.

"Representatives of other countries came here too, but because of the tough commands from Brussels they ask not to advertise the contacts at the moment," he added.

Nevertheless, he admitted that international military cooperation was going on in the increasingly complex situation.
