The official described as positive the contact between NATO and Russia over regional security and military policy.

He highlighted the significance of the resumption, after two years, of this forum, where delegates from the 30 member States of the military alliance held talks with members of a Russian delegation, led by Deputy Foreign Minister Alexander Grushko.

The Norwegian politician added that during the talks, Grushko championed his country’s position regarding security in Europe and noted the danger of NATO’s expansion near Russia’s borders.

On Tuesday, Russian Presidency Spokesman Dmitri Peskov said that NATO is not a development institution, but a tool of confrontation, and added that his country is concerned about the possible inclusion of Finland and Sweden in that military bloc.

In the face of this statement, NATO said that its member States will not give up their capacity of protecting and defending themselves, even with the presence of troops east of that region.

Stoltenberg claimed that NATO is interested in the transparency of military drills to prevent incidents that could be dangerous, and revealed that the talks addressed arms control, disarmament and non-proliferation.

They also dealt with the reciprocal limitation of missiles, nuclear policies, and the reduction of space and cyber threats.
