The Director of the Department of European cooperation Ministry of Foreign Affairs Andrey Kelin told about the consequences of a possible membership of Montenegro in NATO. According to him, this may have a considerable hit on the Russian relationship with the Alliance.
"If such a decision to invite Montenegro to NATO will be taken, of course, it will be another blow to the European security. The same applies to the relationship between Russia and NATO. This will be another blow that will throw our relationship even further, and the chances of improvement will decrease", - quotes the politician "Interfax".
Kelin announced that work is underway to prevent Montenegro conditionally probable results of its accession to NATO. What it is, the diplomat said. However the view was also expressed that it is difficult to predict what the decision on the admission of Montenegro in the ranks of the Alliance will be taken at a meeting of foreign Ministers of NATO member States on December 1-2.
On the likely replenishment of the Alliance of the Montenegrins it is a long time. In the case of joining the NATO powers will be expanded for the first time since 2009 when the unit was joined by Croatia and Albania. If Montenegro were to join the organization, it will not mean automatic accession of other countries-candidates, noted in NATO.
As we were informed Days.Ru, the Russian foreign Ministry assumes that after the Paris terrorist attacks 13 November NATO powers, namely the United States to change the priorities of the policy. "Assume, the action in Paris, most likely, will put everything in its place and slightly change the scale of priorities of our colleagues in Washington and other NATO capitals," stated the Minister of foreign Affairs Sergey Lavrov.
However, relations of NATO and Russia is a challenging time, noticed in the Foreign Ministry: power of the Alliance to deploy large-scale systems, izyaschnaya it's officially the Ukrainian crisis. In the Russian Department this position is called a myth.
