Nr 133-E

According to Foreign Minister Urmas Paet, a main topic of discussion at the meeting of the NATO and Russian foreign ministers in Berlin today was co-operation in the fight against terrorism, and the ministers approved the Action Plan on Terrorism and its implementation programme. The ministers also addressed the situations in Libya and Afghanistan.

“There are areas in which interest towards NATO-Russia co-operation is clearly mutual, for example the fight against terrorism, increasing security in Afghanistan, and fighting against piracy and the narcotics trade. This interest is working together should be utilised to the benefit of both sides,” he added.

Paet stated that NATO and Russia share many of the same security crises, but in order to further develop relations there must be more predictability and trust. “Trust can be increased through political steps from the Russian side that do not treat NATO as a threat,” he asserted.
