Stoltenberg: dialogue with Russia is not easy, but it is necessary

53
Russia has become more self-confident, but the North Atlantic Alliance does not want a new “cold war” and is in favor of a political dialogue with Moscow, reports RIA News Statement by NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg.




We must take into account the fact that we are dealing with a more self-confident Russia. At the same time, we don’t want a repetition of the Cold War and an arms race, but we favor a political dialogue with Moscow, although it’s not easy,
Stoltenberg said in an interview with Deutsche Wirtschafts Nachrichten.

He also expressed hope for "an increase in the number of contacts between Russia and NATO and the intensification of ties through military channels."

At the same time, Stoltenberg said that “the world is becoming more dangerous and hostile,” but at the same time the alliance does not stand still - it develops, it becomes stronger.

We see that Europeans purposefully strengthen their security, but we also see that the USA is doing the same. Earlier, the United States for many years reduced its military presence in Europe. Last tank the brigade was withdrawn from Europe in 2013. Now she is coming back. And this is just one example. Both sides, both North America and Europe, are actively involved in strengthening the security of the alliance’s countries,
The Secretary General noted.

    But who is against contacts and dialogue? Simply with non-standard sharpies the dialogue should be supported by strong biceps .. Like V.S. Vysotsky.

      Stoltenberg in general can not be any confidence on the part of Russia! It simply splurges the eyes of Russians, manipulates the public consciousness in Europe in the interests of global bankers of the US Federal Reserve and trans-Atlantic American companies.
      NATO with its leading role from the Pentagon after the collapse of the Warsaw Pact in general, in principle, should not have been in Europe!

        When NATO was called the Third Reich, its backbone and driving force were well-trained, motivated, battle-hardened Germans. And now this place is occupied by blacks and other transgender people from the United States, who are only enough to drive Arabs through the desert from airplanes.

          The USSR was unable to build communism in a single country due to an arms race, although it won. And the West, while maintaining the system, added a social program to citizens, several times superior to the Social Bloc. In this sense, socialism won, but in the West. We crippled ourselves with the economic ballast from the republics, the social bloc and various feudal lords and clan communes, including cannibals who called themselves Marxists. And the West, continuing colonialism, found slaves in the PRC, cheap oil in Arabia, added an innovative economy and won the Cold War. Now the Russian Federation is deprived of the USSR’s shortcomings, and the EU and the USA themselves began to feed the parasites, lost part of the industry that went into the Asia-Pacific region, became dependent on the supply of not only raw materials, but also consumer goods. And racism that broke the USSR became a problem of the West. Therefore, the Russian Federation escaped with a slight decrease in the standard of living and won the nuclear missile in terms of strategic nuclear forces already, by the way, and in tactical weapons due to the TNW line we are the strongest of all, but in the high-tech and aviation components we are getting better. They realized that all the same Achilles heels of the USSR got into their perforated ears and oversaw.

          NATO prepared Poland for the western, and Turkey for the southern front, like cannon fodder, and the western countries take on aviation and high technology and reduced their armies. Now the Turks have fallen away and Poland looks dull. Therefore, the expansion to the East, the failure in the South, makes the enemy’s position much worse than the initial one, for the half-million Turkish army and the obstacles for NATO infrastructure in Turkish territory are irreparable losses. How true that

          the Poles, of course, are nationalists, but their warriors and priests were scattered over the caste during the division of Poland and the stupid stupids remained in military valor. Cosiners are shorter laughing

      hi , Dmitry.
      In any case, not those who have a whistle in the dark. Austrians, Italians, French and Germans in the bulk for the transition from saber rattling to dialogue, establishing contacts and relationships. Icebergs on this highway are the states and their NATO rattle. So that Herr Stoltenberg should shut up and not open his peacock tail (under which an ordinary chicken f ** a [F. Ranevskaya]).

    With such players it would also be nice to put the barrel on the table. And then they have the rules of the game constantly changing, and the cards are speckled ...
    And in the "tape" the same news is presented as "Russia has become self-confident." Editors don't understand the difference? Oh, these liberals!

      You, that his blow is enough. Stoltenberg was a purely civilian, not only was a leftist, he participated in demonstrations against the US war in Vietnam, he led the youth wing of the Norwegian Labor Party. But he became the Minister of Trade and Energy, the Minister of Finance and the Prime Minister of Norway. This is not the McCain who was tortured, almost our people ... laughing

    How many of these peacekeeping speeches we have already heard about the fact that NATO will no longer expand to the East and so on and so forth. At the moment, NATO is not ready for a direct clash with Russia and for this reason additional time is required, here is such rhetoric " peacekeepers. "

    Russia has become more self-confident, but the North Atlantic Alliance does not want a new Cold War and advocates a political dialogue with Moscow,

    The last tank brigade was withdrawn from Europe in 2013. Now she is coming back. And this is just one example. Both sides, both North America and Europe, are actively involved in strengthening the security of the alliance’s countries,

    So how to understand this? It contradicts itself. NATO promised not to expand to the East, what do we see? That’s the answer to all the initiatives of NATO and Stoltenberg’s fabulous oak tree.
