MOSCOW, April 27. /TASS/. NATO’s proposals to renew trust building measures look strange against the backdrop of Alliance’s general line on deterring Russia, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Wednesday.
"The recent session of the Russia-NATO Council was held at the insistent request of the Alliance after a long pause," Lavrov said at the 5th Moscow International Security Conference. "NATO suspended practical cooperation [with Russia], and one of its spheres was fight against terrorism," he reminded.
"Against the backdrop of statements of NATO leadership about deterring Russia. building up military forces near our borders, proposals to renew measures of confidence building and security look strange," he noted. "The West should refuse an anti-Russian course in order to hold a constructive dialogue," Lavrov concluded.
