NATO Secretary General: We see no immediate danger from Russia for the countries of the alliance

24
NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said in an interview with the Slovak newspaper Pravda that the Russian Federation does not pose a threat to the member countries of the alliance, as they have been provided with reliable security guarantees.




“We do not see any immediate danger (from Russia) relating to any of the NATO countries. The Alliance provides Member States with reliable deterrents. This is one of the reasons (security block). That is why NATO exists. As long as such reliable deterrent mechanisms as nowadays remain, the credibility that someone will attack the NATO country is very small, ”the newspaper quoted him as saying. "Sight".

Stoltenberg did not add Russia to the list of enemies of the West, noting that its role is “very difficult for us to try to attribute it to friends or opponents.”

“We are witnessing a changing security field (in the world). NATO must adapt to this situation. This is what we are doing - we invest more in defense, increase the combat readiness of our forces and strengthen the alliance’s eastern wing, ”he added, stressing that strengthening the organization’s eastern wing provides for“ protecting the airspace, conducting more exercises ”.

In addition, the NATO Secretary General supported cooperation with Russia.

“We are trying to develop constructive relations with Russia. I believe that there is no contradiction between a strong defense and the desire for political dialogue, ”he noted.

According to Stoltenberg, the Russian-NATO dialogue "is being conducted in various formats."

“In NATO, we are negotiating with Russian diplomats. Many times I met with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov. In the alliance, we have decided to stop practical cooperation with Russia, but leave open channels for political dialogue. In addition, many NATO member states maintain communications at various levels with Moscow, ”he noted.

Also, NATO Secretary General noted the cooperation with France and Germany in the "Norman format" for the peaceful settlement of the conflict in the Donbas.

“Russia was also a party to the negotiation process that led to an agreement on the Iranian nuclear program. It is included in the process of finding a political solution to the conflict in Syria. He is negotiating with the United States and other member states of the alliance, ”he stressed.

    So he did not intrusively advertise his NATU ... Who are they intimidating? Russia? Skewers, Russia, their horror story on an elephant trunk! Potential partners? This is the whole west - intimidation!

      With the entry of Latvia into the NATO bloc, the alliance strengthened due to:
      1) Latvian Navy Raft
      2) The Latvian Air Force Kite.

      The fact is that NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg is undoubtedly an official person, but, in a way, is Vice Chairman Pound! Therefore, he can say anything, only it has nothing to do with reality! You need to listen to what the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the United States and members of the committee say! All statements from this body come down to one formula:"Russia is the biggest threat to US security!"
      And this is what we need to build upon from our National Security Strategy!

    Oh, how they started singing. It was worth drowning in the stream of refugees from the East and approaching the line of extinction of Europe. Now again I wanted to establish relations with Russia. He thinks he will be able to redirect the crowds of refugees to Russia. Well, the pipes laughing

    I believe that this danger has never happened.
    Only now, they are strongly pressed, to such an extent that it has become more profitable to ally with us than confrontation.
    This has happened more than once ...

    What is their “reliable deterrent”?
    -Who is this ?
    -En elusive Joe.
    -And why is the elusive?
    -Because nafig nobody needs.
    So we don’t need NATO, but cheeks are inflating that your toad is in a swamp.

    It’s disingenuous, it’s immediately obvious otherwise, after the collapse of the alliance, they would have canceled NATO, since there is no more enemy, and as long as there is a big Russia, these possessed ones will not calm down.

    “We are witnessing a changing field of security (in the world). NATO must adapt to this situation. This is what we are doing - we invest more in defense, increase the combat readiness of our forces and strengthen the eastern wing of the alliance ”

    Another mantra on the topic - "give money, the US military-industrial complex is starving and costs have increased in the NATO apparatus." Nothing new that deserves attention. Hence, we must wait for increased activity of NATO troops in the border areas. In this situation, we need to intensify visual and electronic control over the events. In active actions, sometimes an information leak occurs, the "behavioral incomprehensions" of the probable adversary are clarified. As they say, "he that has eyes, see." GRU, I hope, is not asleep.

    How then to explain this ?! NATO places missile defense systems near Russia. NATO's military infrastructure is approaching our borders, and not vice versa. Some hypocrisy! (Although Russia has never been aggressive towards NATO and has always been looking for contacts for joint interaction).

    This means only one thing - they will soon want to drag us into some kind of adventure under the guise of a "partner" where they themselves can’t cope and want to drag chestnuts out of the fire with our hands. Just something like that and nothing more.

    Perhaps my comparisons are not entirely correct. But. If the voluntary annexation of Crimea by NATO was declared an “anschluss”, the inclusion of new countries in the NATO bloc by changing the governments of these countries and initiating a “voluntary” accession to the military bloc fully corresponds to the term “anschluss”. Based on this, it can be concluded that the military bloc of NATO through the Anschluss over the past 20 years has occupied almost all of Eastern Europe.

    Alliance Provides Member States with Reliable Intimidation

    That's for sure. And this means one word - Russia. After providing this remedy, the Baltic states, and now the Scandinavians, begin an attack of hysteria. What makes the alliance great.
