Russia-NATO cooperation marred with unresolved issues - analyst

Independent political analyst Vladimir Kozin claims he is still quite skeptical about the warming between Russia and NATO.

The NATO Secretary General is in Moscow for an official visit to discuss Russia’s aid in Afghanistan, European security system and other issues of mutual interest.

“There is some improvement in Russia-NATO relations, but not that much," Kozin told RT. "Especially we are still confronted with military confrontation between each other. We are still seeing NATO bases moving closer to the Russian national territory, naval and air force activity, also NATO is still looming over our borders. A ballistic missile defense system (BMDS) will include much more components than in the previous George W. Bush plan to fill BMDSs in Europe.”
