The Alliance's relations with Russia have deteriorated recently. This was stated by Secretary General of the Alliance Jens Stoltenberg, as Kommersant reports.

According to Stoltenberg, NATO's relations with Moscow are currently at "the lowest level since the Cold War." However, the Alliance still seeks to improve the situation and establish a dialogue with Moscow.

"NATO will continue to seek dialogue with Russia. It is not a sign of weakness, on the contrary, it is a sign of strength, and I welcome the forthcoming meeting between Presidents Biden and Putin," Jens Stoltenberg said.

He stressed that NATO countries are united and the most important signal they will send to Russia is "it cannot divide us."

He added that NATO leaders would consult with US President Joe Biden on a planned meeting with Vladimir Putin.

"I am confident that NATO leaders will be happy to consult with President Biden before his meeting with President Putin," Stoltenberg said.

As it was reported earlier, on 7 June, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg initiated a meeting of the NATO-Russia Council. The Alliance's Secretary General is convinced that one of the possible topics for discussion could be the mutual exchange of information on military maneuvers "to prevent misunderstandings and possible escalation."
