German defense chief assesses Russia-NATO talks

Speaking to the German broadcaster RBB German Defense Minister Christine Lambrecht said Thursday that she welcomed contacts between Russia and NATO on Europe’s security situation.

"We are now in a situation where we can resume talks that we haven't had for a very long time," she said. "The fact that we can talk to each other again and stop the escalation is a very good sign," Lambrecht noted.

Wednesday's Russia-NATO Council meeting in Brussels was the second stage of consultations between Russia and Western states on Moscow's proposals regarding European security. The first stage, which was the Russia-US talks, took place in Geneva on January 10.
