MOSCOW, July 5. /TASS/. Russian President has discussed with the permanent members of the Russian Security Council confidence-building measures in the skies over the Baltic region, the coming possible contacts within the NATO-Russia Council framework and the situation in Syria, Russian presidential press secretary Dmitry Peskov told journalists on Tuesday.
According to him, the head of state held on Tuesday the traditional briefing with the Security Council members. "They discussed the international problems, in particular, exchanged views on the issues related to confidence building in the skies over the Baltic region, following up upon the conversation between Putin and (Finnish President) Sauli Niinisto that has recently been held in Finland," the Kremlin official said. In addition, Peskov said, the meeting participants "discussed certain issues related to the possible contacts within the NATO-Russia Council framework" that are expected soon.
Vladimir Putin said last Friday after talks with Finnish President Sauli Niinisto that Russia supported Finland’s initiative to ban flights over the Baltic Sea with transponders switched of.
The situation in Syria was also discussed, the Russian presidential press secretary said.
