Germany: suspension of Russia- NATO Council was a mistake

2010-03-02 17:12

NATO made a mistake in August 2008, when froze work of Russia-NATO Council, believes Werner Hoyer, the Minister of State of Germany.


He voiced his point of view in the speech in the High School of Economy in Moscow. He hailed the resumption of the Council work, occurred in December and called it a contribution in trust reinforcement.

In the opinion of Hoyer, NATO made a big mistake instead of using the structure for solving contradictions, and added such organisations exist to work not in fair weather only.

Several days ago Alexander Vershbow, the deputy Secretary of Defense of the USA, ex-ambassador of the USA to Russia, also called the suspicion of the Council's work a mistake.

Relations of the Alliance and Russia deteriorated after combat actions in South Ossetia in August 2008 and subsequent "peace enforcement" operation.

NATO accused Russia of disproportionate use of force and announced the suspension of Russia-NATO Council sittings at all levels. In its turn, Russia decided to freeze a number of joint programs with NATO. In March 2009 foreign ministers of NATO countries decoded to resume full-fledged cooperation of the Alliance and Russia.
