MOSCOW, March 2. /TASS/. There is no need to set up any new mechanisms to prevent military incidents between Russia and NATO, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said at a briefing on Thursday.
When commenting on a statement made by Secretary General of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) Lamberto Zannier who said that a new mechanism to prevent military incidents needed to be set, she noted that the current mechanisms should be used.
"There is no need to create anything new in order to prevent conflicts and stop relations from deteriorating, but the current tools should be used, because at present these tools are blocked, not by us but by NATO," the Russian diplomat added. "Why create anything new if old tools are not working properly? Now, we should give preference to restoring cooperation through the current mechanisms. After that, we could consider the need for any additional tools to facilitate cooperation."
