AP: NATO, Russia considering Baltic risk reduction plan
NATO remains at loggerheads with Russia over Ukraine but will consider a Kremlin proposal for reducing the risk of air accidents in the crowded skies over the Baltic Sea, NATO's chief said Wednesday.
Alliance Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg briefed reporters following a meeting of the NATO-Russia Council at NATO headquarters in Brussels. Stoltenberg said NATO ambassadors informed their Russian counterpart, Alexander Grushko, about decisions made at NATO's July 8-9 summit in Warsaw.
On Ukraine, "there was not a meeting of the minds today," Stoltenberg said.
However, he said the Russian delegation made suggestions on risk reduction moves in Baltic airspace involving the use of warplanes' transponders. The NATO chief said "allies will study this proposal carefully," but want more details.
