MOSCOW, June 21. /TASS/. Prevention of flight incidents with Russian aircraft over the Baltic Sea will be discussed at the next Russia-NATO meeting, Deputy Secretary General of NATO Rose Gottemoeller said on Wednesday.
She pointed to the growth of flight incidents over the Baltic Sea.
"We have from the NATO prospective a very keen interest to ensure that principles of good airmanship are followed, and that pilots, who are extraordinary well trained, whatever they’re NATO pilots or whatever they’re from the Russian Federation, know what they’re doing. It’s important that both sides take care to avoid dangerous incidents," Gottemoeller said.
"That’s one of the areas that we really want to work on in the NATO-Russia council," the NATO Deputy Secretary General added.
A ministerial meeting of the NATO-Russia Council can convene when there is a real agenda for it.
"It’s not that important for ministers just to meet in the NATO-Russia Council. It’s important that there will be a very important serious substance, there will be a very important function that will be carried out by the NATO-Russia Council, and then all parties make their decisions on whatever or not it is appropriate for a meeting to take place," she said.
"Ministers are getting together all the time, soon the G20 will be meeting."
"I always stress that form is less important than function," Gottemoeller added. "We are meeting on a very high level, we are meeting on the ambassadorial level, that is extraordinary important."
