NATO Chief Stoltenberg Regrets Leaving Russian Mission
NATO chief Jens Stoltenberg regrets Russia’s termination of its diplomatic mission at NATO.
That was an angry response from the Kremlin to the earlier expulsion of Russians from Brussels, but according to Stoltenberg, they were not diplomats, but in reality, intelligence officers.
Stoltenberg also regrets that the Russian government is becoming increasingly repressive at home and abroad. He, therefore, praised the awarding of a European Parliament human rights prize to Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny on Wednesday.
But according to Stoltenberg, NATO and Russia should continue to talk to each other. Relations after the Cold War have now reached rock bottom, he says.
