MOSCOW, April 26. /TASS/. NATO treats Russia as a threat but Russia wants to develop good relations with all countries and associations, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Tuesday.
"Talking about who presents a threat for whom, I think we should probably not forget about frequent statement that we have heard over the last years from Brussels, from the headquarters, from NATO leaders, that they consider Russia as a threat," Peskov said.
"Such statements are not only limited to words, we see real steps aimed at building up military potential, moving this military potential closer to Russian border," he added. "It is enough here to state the facts that are obvious," he noted.
The Kremlin spokesman reminded that Russian President Vladimir Putin repeatedly noted that Moscow is ready to develop mutually beneficial, kind and constructive relations with all countries in the world.
Peskov was commenting on US President Barack Obama’s interview to CBS. "Mr. Putin has generally viewed NATO, EU, trans-Atlantic unity, as a threat to Russian power," Obama said. "Now, I think he's mistaken about that. I've indicated to him that, in fact, a strong, unified Europe working with a strong, outward-looking Russia - that's the right recipe. So far, he has not been entirely persuaded," he added.
