Russia will up its cooperation with NATO only if it is in it's interests
Russia will up its cooperation with NATO only if it is in it's interests, a spokesman for the Russian Foreign Ministry said Wednesday ahead of NATO Secretary General Jaap de Hoop Scheffer's visit to Moscow scheduled for Friday. Alexander Yakovenko said that after the 2002 Rome Declaration, Moscow understood it was time to turn a new page in its relations with NATO. "The Russia-NATO Council proved to be necessary and efficient. At the same time, we have approached the stage where we need to improve the quality of our collaboration [and] since the council has so much potential from our point of view, we are expecting greater results," Yakovenko said. He said Russia took the alliance's transformation process into consideration while developing cooperation with NATO. "[Moscow] paid attention to the NATO secretary general's proposals to solidify the organization's political component, develop closer contacts with the UN and the EU and move towards strategic partnership with Russia," Yakovenko said.
