MOSCOW, February 13. /TASS/. Both Russia and NATO would benefit from constructive relations, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said in an interview with the Moscow-based Kommersant-FM radio.
He said the world is too complicated to divide the countries into friends and foes and NATO is not seeking confrontation with Russia. In fact, it is trying to establish relations of constructive partnership but it can't not erode the principles on which security is hinged.
Stoltenberg said his experience in the capacity of Norway’s Prime Minister showed that very good and fruitful relations with Russia had been developing for more than two decades after the end of the Cold War and this was true of either Norway-Russia or NATO-Russia contexts.
Both NATO and Russia benefited from it, with open borders, development of trade, political contacts, and practical cooperation.
