Lithuanian Foreign Minister Landsbergis called on NATO to reject Russian security guarantees

“We & nbsp; do not & nbsp; think that & nbsp; any negotiations should begin on & nbsp; what was proposed by Russia & nbsp; ;, & nbsp; & mdash; said the diplomat.

According to & nbsp; he said, & nbsp; in the light of Moscow's demands, there are no & nbsp; talks on & nbsp; about the withdrawal of the alliance's military base from the territory of Lithuania.

He noted & nbsp; that & nbsp; the situation in the & nbsp; region is not & nbsp; conducive to the & nbsp; withdrawal of NATO military from & nbsp; the territory of western Europe, but, on the contrary, requires an increase in the contingent of the alliance.

On December 17, the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs published the draft agreement between Russia and & nbsp ; USA on & nbsp; security guarantees and & nbsp; agreements on & nbsp; security measures & nbsp; RF and & nbsp; states & nbsp; & mdash; NATO members, which were transferred to the United States on December 15 & nbsp;.

Later, Assistant Secretary of State for Europe and & nbsp; Eurasian Affairs Karen Donfried said that & nbsp; States are ready to discuss Russia's proposals in the & nbsp; security sphere, but & nbsp; some of & nbsp; they are considered unacceptable.
