VIENNA, June 16 /TASS/. Not a single Russia-NATO cooperation program is functioning for the moment, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Alexey Meshkov told TASS on Tuesday.
"None of the Russia-NATO programs that used to be at work are functioning at a working level," he said.
According to him, the last Russia-NATO contact took place in Brussels several weeks ago when Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov met NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg. Meshkov noted that the initiative to restore relations should come from a country that had broken them.
"A proposal to restore the relations should come from a party that has broken them," Meshkov concluded.
