BERLIN, April 29. /TASS/. While taking measures to enhance the security of Nato member-states it is essential to observe the Russia-NATO Founding Act, Germany’s Federal Chancellor Angela Merkel told a news conference after talks with Latvia’s visiting Prime Minister Maris Kucinskis.
"We’ve discussed progress in preparations for Nato’s summit in Warsaw. Since the summit in Wales we’ve proceeded along the path of enhancing the security of all Nato members, including those in the East. We are trying to see what else can be done to prolong our efforts along these lines. Personally I always say that it is important to act within the framework of the Russia-Nato Founding Act," she said.
"We will do our utmost to ensure this process [of enhancing security] should not run counter to the Act," Merkel said. "We’ve discussed what else Germany can do in addition to the Wales agreements. An enhancement is possible here, as far as Latvia is concerned, too. We will examine and specify this issue by the Warsaw summit. But everything will proceed in line with the Russia-Nato Founding Act," Merkel said.
