MOSCOW, December 7. /TASS/. Moscow is anticipating specific details from Germany concerning the initiative on the arms control in Europe, the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement on Wednesday.
"We note the efforts by the German OSCE chairmanship on launching dialogue on conventional arms control in Europe, including the initiative by German Foreign Minister, Frank-Walter Steinmeier, on the issue," the ministry said.
"The resumption of this dialogue is long overdue. However, it is inseparable from the European political process, efforts to develop a coordinated notion of a new model of relations between countries and integration associations, the future European security system and further development of its key elements."
"We expect specific proposals from Germany on its initiative and the formation of the dialogue concept," the Russian Foreign Ministry said.
"It is important how those NATO-member states whose efforts earlier pushed the arms control dialogue into deadlock will respond to this initiative. Russia is open to a discussion on international security issues based on equality and mutual consideration of the parties’ interests."
