MOSCOW, July 12. /TASS/. Results of the recent NATO summit in Warsaw were in focus of a meeting between Alexey Pushkov, the chairman of the international committee of the Russian State Duma lower parliament house, and Gernot Erler, the German government’s coordinator for inter-societal cooperation with Russia and a parliament member with the Social Democratic Party of Germany, the Duma committee’s press service said.
"The sides discussed the results of the NATO summit in Warsaw, a possible agenda of a Russia-NATO Council meeting, the implementation of the Minsk agreements, and steps that might be taken to deescalate tensions in Europe," the press service said. "The sides agreed to maintain contacts in order to elaborate optimal formats of parliamentary contacts on the above issues."
As many as 24 articles of the 139-point final communique of the July 8-9 NATO summit are dedicated to problems linked with Russia and only seven - to cooperation and dialogue with Moscow. But whereas the topicality of dialogue is only declared in the document, it contains quite concrete measures geared to contain Russia, namely to deploy four battalions to Poland, Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia on a rotational basis. The summit also announced placing of NATO’s missile defense system at an initial level of combat readiness and enhanced control over the situation in the Black, Baltic and Mediterranean Seas, and in the North Atlantic.
