MUNICH, February 8. /TASS/. Russia will look at resuming former formats of contacts with NATO as soon as NATO is ready for that, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Sunday.
"When NATO is ready, I think we will look at a possibility to resume these contacts," he told journalists on the sidelines of the Munich Security Conference.
He said that during the conference NATO officials had said they were interested in further dialogue with Russia, including in the military sphere and on issues of control and coordination in the air space.
"We pointed to the fact that it were NATO structures to suspend all types of practical cooperation, including cooperation between the military, in particular on the problem of joint control over the air space," Lavrov said.
