MUNICH, February 12. /TASS/. NATO understands it lacks resources to play an independent role in settling the migrant crisis, Russia’s Permanent Representative to NATO Alexander Grushko said on Friday.
"Judging by what is going on in Brussels, NATO understands it lacks resources and instruments to make it possible for the organization to play any independent role in settling refugee problems," he said.
"That’s why key efforts are now being exerted to find partners NATO can cooperate with in settling Western Europe’s problems," Grushko said, adding that the basic focus was being laid on strengthening ties with the European Union.
"Now they are looking at using the tools deployed in eastern Mediterranean and the Aegean Sea to refer information to the European Union’s Frontex Agency," he said, adding that NATO’s forces would not be used to physically contain migration flows.
