BUCHAREST, August 29. /TASS/. NATO Deputy Secretary General Alexander Vershbow told a news conference in the Romanian capital on Monday that Russia has the right to conduct military exercises without notice.
"The practice of Russia conducting unannounced military exercises is a source of worries," he said, adding that "Russia is entitled to conduct such exercises. Unfortunately, the OSCE agreement that mentions that announcement of military exercises has loopholes that allow such manifestations," he said.
"I do not believe the exercises contribute to stability or mutual trust," Vershbow said, adding that "they generate a potential for misunderstandings, erroneous calculations and there are opinions that we should settle the legislative loopholes."
