PARIS, June 29. /TASS/. Moscow will closely follow discussions at NATO’s summit in Warsaw, first and foremost, from the angle of the alliance’s growing military activity in Europe, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said at a meeting with his French counterpart Jean-Marc Ayrault.
"We’ve discussed the situation in relations between Russia and NATO and the possibility of holding a meeting of the Russia-NATO Council at the level of permanent representatives in Brussels. And, of course, we will be closely following the way the discussion will proceed at the NATO summit in Warsaw in July, above all, from the angle of the continuing build-up the alliance’s military activity and NATO’s military presence near our borders," Lavrov said.
"Missile defense problems belong here, too," he added.
"We proceed from the assumption that all these issues should be discussed frankly. Actions taken on both sides are to be explained and mutual understanding achieved," Lavrov said. "It goes without saying that the situation in relations between Russia and NATO is unable to make one happy. The North Atlantic Alliance has in fact frozen the relations."
NATO’s summit is due in Warsaw on July 8-9.
