BERLIN, July 8 /TASS/. German Chancellor Angela Merkel stressed the importance of the Founding Act on Mutual Relations, which Russia and NATO signed in May 1997 in her speech at the NATO summit in Warsaw on Friday.
"Germany thinks it is important that the Russia-NATO Founding Act preserved its importance," German government Spokesman Steffen Seibert quoted Merkel in Twitter as saying.
Kanzlerin #Merkel: Deutschland hat Wert darauf gelegt, dass die NATO-Russland-Grundakte weiterhin Geltung hat.— Steffen Seibert (@RegSprecher) 8 июля 2016 г.
"Concurrently, we are going to focus on dialogue. That is why relations with Russia will be an item for discussion tonight," Merkel’s press service quoted her as saying.
At the same time, the German chancellor believes that NATO should maintain its defense capability but continue its dialogue with Moscow.
