Media: NATO discovered a problem on its southern frontiers

34
The NATO leadership intends to begin developing a new strategy for its activities in the Mediterranean, reports RIA News Post Financial Times.




According to the newspaper, such plans of the alliance are connected "with increased instability in the Middle East and the growing military presence of the Russian Federation south of the Bosphorus."

NATO leaders fear that “they paid insufficient attention to the southern flank of NATO, and this vulnerability became apparent in connection with the Russian operation in Syria,” the newspaper writes.

Consideration of the draft of the new strategy in the Mediterranean should take place on December 1-2 at a meeting of foreign ministers of European countries. The Secretary General of the organization Stoltenberg noted on this occasion that "NATO’s southern flank faces many threats that require urgent measures."

“The strategy will involve more active intelligence activities in the Mediterranean, strengthening NATO’s permanent military presence in the region, and sending NATO military advisers to countries in North Africa and the Middle East”- said the Secretary General.

The words of Stoltenberg were commented by Adrian Bradshaw, Deputy Commander-in-Chief of the Alliance Forces in Europe: “Freedom of navigation in the Mediterranean is fundamentally important for NATO. As we see more advanced Russian potential with a significant area of ​​reach, it is becoming increasingly important to strengthen our deterrent forces. ”

According to him, "NATO intends to create a continuous line of deterrence in the south."

    "NATO intends to create a continuous containment line in the south." Are they taking an example from the great Ukrov? Those also build the "eastern shaft" by sawing means. Soon they will start talking about the budget ...

      Why so? Conveniently. Far from the Russian borders, nobody will be bothered. It seems that even progress is evident - over time, maybe even the containment line to the south will leave, closer to the penguins. lol

        Do not disturb the penguins. They may be offended. Better protect your borders, and no one will mind.

      And everything has already been strengthened. 5000 warriors on a rotational basis, a couple of Abrams, a dozen Bradleys. The East is securely covered.
      And across the border through binoculars, through the gloom of Mordor, "they watch how the Dark Lord, sitting on a bear, moves thousands of troops across the country from North to South, from East to West and back, how the palisade of air defense missiles grows, behind which the Topol barrels are visible. , "Yarsov", "Ash" and other trees of Russian forests.

      In general, something too many problems began to emerge from NATO. Does a well-functioning Western military machine have problems?) I'm in shock! how so We have been scared and taught for so long that the West is the head of everything, that they have a strong army. It is not for us lapotniki to compete with them. But in fact, there is a rush, there is a break, it’s stuck there, it didn’t go ... It’s direct, somehow, it becomes a shame for NATO)

    When the "Bastion" is delivered to Tartus and the S400, they will not be so vigorous. And containers with "Onyxamia" can also be placed there.

    sending NATO military advisers to North Africa and the Middle East

    Here are those on. And who sparked conflicts there and whose advisers are sitting in this region. It seems that from the abundance of conflicts created by the head of this bloc (the United States), NATO has completely lost its brains and lost its landmarks. If it goes on like this, then they will soon begin to defend themselves.
