MOSCOW, June 26. /TASS/. It is now untimely to raise the issue of resuming Russia-NATO relations, a Russian lawmaker said on Sunday.
"I would put it somewhat harshly, as a soldier: the issue of resuming relations with NATO is an untimely one," Viktor Zavarzin, a member of the defense committee of the Russian State Duma lower parliament house and Russia’s former representative to NATO, said at a Strong Russia discussion panel within the ruling United Russia party’s congress dedicated to the election program.
According to the lawmaker, NATO’s member countries "are behaving in a wrong way and have a wrong vision of Russia’s role in international and European security."
Russia will cooperate with NATO only when it thinks it advantageous for itself, he stressed.
