HAMBURG /Germany/, December 9. /TASS/. Attempts are being made to drag Montenegro into NATO before US President Barack Obama leaves office, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said at a press conference on the sidelines of the OSCE Ministerial Council meeting in Hamburg.
"NATO has been advancing its infrastructure towards Russia’s borders. For the first time in many years, the US has been deploying its heavy military assets in the Baltic states," the Russian minister noted. "But still, NATO keeps repeating that it won’t admit new members."
"Frantic attempts are being made to drag Montenegro into NATO, no one asks if this country’s people want it although it would no harm to have consultations on such matter," Lavrov added. "It seems, the goal is to make Montenegro a NATO member before Barack Obama leaves office. However, these attempts do NATO no credit."
