Russia is ready to use military force against neighbors. Historic war with Georgia and ongoing conflict in Ukraine serve as examples – Jens Stoltenberg, Secretary General of North-Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) told Deutsche Welle in an exclusive interview.
In the interview, the full version of which will go on the air next week, Stoltenberg expressed concern about Russia’s military potential and the country’s investing in nuclear weapons.
At the same time, Secretary General of NATO claimed that NATO wanted to improve relations and decrease tension with Russia.
“We do not want new Cold War,” he said and added that the alliance was seeking a balance between defense and dialog.
