NATO's expansion has led to an unprecedented level of tension over the last 30 years in Europe, judging by some statements made at the Security Conference, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said, speaking in Munich.
Lavrov told NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg that he supports the resumption of military cooperation with the alliance. Without it, the diplomats’ meetings do not make any sense, he said. “We need to resume [our] military cooperation. [And yet] NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg, surrounded by his deputies yesterday, couldn’t say that NATO is ready for this. It's sad,” Lavrov said.
