Lavrov concerned about NATO’s growing activity

Russia finds NATO’s growing activity near the borders of Russia and Belarus worrisome, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said.

"We find worrisome NATO’s growing activity near the borders of Belarus and Russia, as well as the decisions in favor of the further buildup of the member countries’ military budgets made at the alliance’s London summit," Lavrov in a message of greeting, read out by the deputy chief of the Foreign Policy Planning Department of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Alexei Dobrynin, at the opening of a conference commemorating Andrei Gromyko.

"These steps lead to Europe’s militarization and are being taken in defiance of the vows not to strengthen one's own security at the expense of the security of others," TASS cited the message as saying.
