NATO worried about placing the statement of the Russian Federation troops on the borders. The relevant statement made the general secretary NATO Anders Fogh Rasmussen.
"We are concerned by some statements from the Russian side, including the placement of troops near the border," — quoted him UNIAN.
NATO Secretary-General stressed that the parties have significant experience of co-operation and shared many common interests, including the settlement of the situation in Afghanistan and the fight against piracy. He noted that NATO is interested in the upcoming development of relations with Moscow.
According to Rasmussen, the main task now — to bring these things to another level, "so that NATO and our homeland are really strategic partners, but this requires trust."
He stressed that system European missile defense system, which is going to expand NATO in Europe is not directed against the Russian Federation.
Add that before the NATO secretary general has called very unacceptable risk to the address of the Russian Federation Alliance in connection with the deployment of missile defense units in Europe. He criticized the risk of the Chief of General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces General Nikolai Makarov, the ability of a preemptive strike on the elements of a planned missile defense system (NMD) in Europe. Rasmussen said that these "very unacceptable" fundamentally contrary to the wording agreed in late 2010, aims to expand the partnership.
"Dangers in the address or the members of the NATO alliance and the consideration of the ability of offensive measures against NATO are in conflict with this line, "- the head of the alliance identified.
As for the claims of Moscow to give NATO a legally binding guarantees not directed missile defense system against RF, NATO Secretary General said that NATO still 15 years ago have given written assurances of non-use of force against Russia.
"We keep our word, and I hope that the Russian, too," — he concluded.
Earlier, Nikolai Makarov said that Russian weapon will allow disabling missile defense without breaking with special physical principles. According to him, "can disrupt the set pieces missile defense without resorting to their physical destruction." He noted that these funds RF developed.
The decision to develop a missile defense system in NATO Europe was adopted in November 2010 at the summit in Lisbon. Our homeland and NATO agreed to cooperate on European missile defense project at a summit in Lisbon in 2010, but the talks have stalled because of the U.S. refusal to provide legal guarantees of non-targeting system deployed against Russian deterrent forces. Our homeland in response to the deployment of missile defense in Europe wants to make a set of measures of military-technical and diplomatic nature.
