PARIS, July 12, 21:15 /ITAR-TASS/. France’s top military official has said integration of Ukraine and Georgia into NATO’s military structures can be interpreted as hostility towards Russia.
“I’m sure that it would not be the best response to the current conflicts,” French Defence Minister Jean-Claude Le Drian said in an interview with Le Monde on Saturday.
France continues to be committed to the policy of “firmness and responsibility” and considers Russia “the potential partner”. “It is necessary to be firm because it is unacceptable to threaten borders. This leads to instability in Europe and runs counter to international law. It is necessary to be responsible because the dialogue should not be interrupted,” Le Drian said.
“Russia is our partner and we don’t intend to isolate Russia,” Le Drian said.
