Moscow expects specific answers from the North Atlantic Treaty Organization made at a Russia-NATO Council meeting, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Thursday.




“The Russian side proposed a whole number of specific and practical confidence-building measures, including the proposals on warplanes’ flights over the Baltic Sea with switched-on transponders,” the spokeswoman said.


“The Russian side also expressed its readiness to continue a detailed discussion of the entire range of military and political issues at the level of military experts,” Zakharova said.


“We’re waiting for a specific response from our colleagues, NATO representatives and we hope that this reaction will follow without any special delays,” the Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman said.


Moscow did not hear anything new at the July 13 Russia-NATO Council meeting, the spokeswoman said.


“The discussion centered on the decisions of the alliance’s Warsaw summit. In particular, the talk was about the build-up of the alliance’s eastern flank and the consequences of these decisions for European and regional security,” Zakharova said.


“We did not hear anything principally new,” the Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman said.
