NATO would do better to deal with its own problems, Russia’s Foreign Ministry said on Wednesday in response to comments against Moscow by the alliance’s chief.
“Address issues in your member countries. They require urgent intervention: vaccination, the crisis, human rights in NATO countries,” said Maria Zakharova, spokesperson for the Foreign Ministry.
“As soon as you resolve them, we will immediately begin to study your experience. But only a successful one.”
At a news conference after a meeting of the alliance’s Council of Foreign Ministers earlier in the day, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said Moscow allegedly “destabilizes the situation in neighboring countries,” continues to build up military power, and also “suppresses political dissent.”
