NATO Head Says Russian Anti-Terror Cooperation Important

Updated on

Cooperation between NATO and Russia in fighting terrorism would be important even amid the conflict over Ukraine, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said in the wake of the shootings at a satirical magazine in Paris.

“That’s the reason why we still strive for a more cooperative and constructive relationship with Russia,” Stoltenberg said today in the Bavarian town of Kreuth. “We think it is important that Russia, which is our biggest neighbor in Europe, and NATO are able to work together on important issues like, for instance, fighting terror.” NATO and Russia “have for many years worked together” on the issue, he said.
