Grushko: NATO sliding back to policy of deterrence in relations with Moscow

Russia's Deputy Foreign Minister Alexander Grushko said that the policy of deterrence, which NATO is conducting against Russia, hampers normal cooperation between the parties.

"NATO is sliding back to its 1949 disposition - to a policy of deterrence in its relations with our country," he said on the sidelines of the Core Group Meeting of the Munich Security Conference, which Minsk is hosting.

"There can be no normal cooperation under these conditions, since cooperation is possible when the parties do not regard each other as enemies, but presume that there are objective spheres of common interests,"TASS cited the senior diplomat as saying.

In 2014, the alliance froze its political dialogue with Russia almost completely. Beforehand, ambassador meetings of the Russia-NATO Council had been held several times a month on a variety of issues. There were two meetings this year (the last one was held on October 31. Deputy Permanent Representative of the Russian Federation to NATO Yuri Gorlach represented Moscow).
