MOSCOW, April 16. /TASS/. NATO expansion is a major US policy miscalculation, which has failed to resolve the issue of security in Europe, Russia’s Ambassador to NATO Alexander Grushko said on Thursday.
"The project of the NATO expansion has exhausted itself," Grushko told reporters.
"Many renowned politicians directly state today that after the end of the cold war the US major blunder was a decision on resuming the so-called ‘open door’ policy. This is the US major miscalculation in the 20th century," the Russian envoy said.
"Today we see that the process of the NATO expansion has not resolved any of the real problems of the European continent," the diplomat said.
According to Grushko, NATO’s activity in the Balkans has led to numerous troubles in the region and the collapse of states.
"We know the results of NATO’s activity in Libya. Many NATO countries participated in intervention in Iraq and the situation, which has developed in the region, is largely the result of the activity of that organization," the Russian envoy said.
