BERLIN, August 31, /ITAR-TASS/. Poland, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia and Canada has called for denunciation of the Russia-NATO Founding Act of 1997, the German weekly Spiegel reported on Sunday.
According to the publication, this step will make it possible to increase the number of troops NATO can deploy in the territory of the former Eastern bloc states.
The weekly says official Berlin at the current stage is against this step, however, with “every new action” of Moscow it is more and more difficult for the German diplomats to stand their ground. The magazine refers to sources in the German government and NATO however, no official comments have been made yet.
On Sunday, the German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung said NATO planned to deploy five bases in Eastern Europe. The bases are planned to be deployed in Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Romania and Poland. According to NATO plans, up to 600 troops will be stationed at each of the bases.
