The Russian foreign minister said it was necessary to "study, with all the facts at hand, whether the current situation conforms to the obligations of the parties who signed the Russia-NATO Founding Act ."
He also noted that NATO’s activity in the areas that border Russia "is still a significant destabilizing factor."
