MOSCOW, December 15. /TASS/. The trust between Russia and NATO is at its minimum level since the end of the cold war period, Chief of the Russian General Staff Army General Valery Gerasimov said on Thursday.
"The dialogue between the Russian Federation and NATO has been frozen and military contacts have been curtailed while the trust between the alliance and Russia has been at the minimum level since the end of the cold war," Gerasimov said at a briefing for foreign military attaches accredited in Russia.
"In order to de-escalate the situation, the Russian side delivered its assessments of the developments in the region and voiced its proposals on the program of possible interaction at a session of the Russia-NATO Council in July this year," the chief of Russia’s General Staff said.
According to the general, the program stipulates an exchange of military experts’ delegations for a direct dialog and the discussion of the problematic issues of ensuring military security and preventing dangerous military incidents in the airspace and at sea, the flights of warplanes in the airspace over the Baltic Sea with the switched-on transponders and some other initiatives.
