Russia advocated for resuming military cooperation with the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). This was reported during Munich Security Conference by Sergey Lavrov, the Russian Foreign Minister, according to Interfax.

"In order to eliminate this fear and suspicion, military cooperation should be renewed (between Russia and NATO, - 112 International)," Lavrov said.

The minister added that expert meeting between Russia and NATO may take place in March in order to discuss Baltic aviation security including transponder issue.

"Yesterday Jens Stoltenberg told me there is hope that experts will finally gather in March," Lavrov said.

The minister also noted that Merkel’s offer to discuss cyber security in the framework of Russia-NATO council reaffirms Berlin’s interest to resume full functioning of this format.

"Today during our cyber security discussion, Angela Merkel offered very interesting solution that the Russia-NATO Council should deal with this issue. So now, if the Chancellor of Germany, which is one of the major NATO members, advocates for NATO dealing with cyber security, I make a conclusion that Berlin, at least, want this Council to fully operate and not just confined itself to discussions," Russian Foreign Minister claimed in Munich.
