British MPs call on NATO to harden position on Russia2009-07-10 15:23
NATO must take a "hard-headed" approach to Russia, the Commons Defence Committee (Great Britain) believes. The Chamber's report states that despite necessity to cooperate with Moscow on a number of issues it does not mean "accepting the legitimacy of a Russian sphere of influence". According to the deputies Great Britain must urge pull-out of Russian troops from the territory of Georgia, Polit.ru writes with reference to BBC.gt-en-newsitem-inside
The authors of the report highlight that though Moscow did not pose a direct threat to the British security, they fully share apprehensions of some NATO members neighboring Russia after last year's events. The statement also calls on NATO to adopt robust contingency planning.
It will be remembered that events in South Ossetia in August 2008 led to suspension of Russia-NATO military and political cooperation. However recently it was mutually decided to resume partnership. During US President Barack Obama's visit to Moscow the treaty on NATO military cargo transit to Afghanistan was signed in addition to the non-military cargo transit agreement. Following Obama-Medvedev talks many observers started speaking about "reset" in spite of current differences over Georgia, for instance.
