BERLIN, September 02. /ITAR-TASS/. Strategic partnership with Russia is more important than NATO’s presence in the Baltic States, German expert, retired General Harald Kujat said on Tuesday.
“The task is to improve cooperation with Russia for settling crises. For the first time after the Cold War, we have all instruments for this. It would be pity to lose them,” Kujat said.
He disagrees that Russia is more an enemy than a partner for NATO. Earlier, NATO Deputy Secretary General Alexander Vershbow said the allied group had been compelled to treat Russia “as more of an enemy than a partner”.
“The Russian-NATO Founding Act calls for resolving a conflict in negotiations when security interests of one party or both parties are affected. NATO does not do this,” he said.
During the Russia-Georgia conflict in 2008, NATO “did not give up cooperation. It only froze concrete programs. This was a mistake”, the German expert said.
