NATO Secretary General offers Russia agreement on mutual
non-aggression guarantees

December 15, 2012 | 20:21

The NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen believes Russia’s
demands unreal to present legal guarantees not targeted against its
EuroMD. Instead, Rasmussen offers Russia to adopt a political document
on mutual non-aggression guarantees.

In an interview to the Interfax he said that the political document,
by which the governments of 29 countries, including the NATO states
and Russia, confirm the non-aggression guarantees against each other,
is in power as any other legal document.

The NATO Secretary General emphasized that it is unreal to receive a
legal document, which could have ratified by the 29 countries.

He also added that the missile threat is quite real, and it does
require a real protection. Hence, it is decided to build a missile
defense system. At the same time, NATO invites Russia to cooperate, as
Russian and NATO systems could have cooperated.
