Lavrov: NATO seeks to independently resolve security issues in Eurasia

Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has said that the North Atlantic Alliance intends to “privatise” all security-related issues in Eurasia.

According to him, the bloc expects to prevent the creation of a Eurasian security structure.

“NATO will hinder such fair processes in every possible way, but this is an absolutely alternative path,” Lavrov said following a meeting of the Council of Foreign Ministers of the CSTO member states, RIA Novosti reported.

He noted that NATO’s aggressive line is the source of most threats to the security of Eurasia. At the same time, the alliance wants to “privatise, take under itself” the issues related to ensuring stability, the Minister added.

Earlier, Lavrov said that the conflict in Ukraine unleashed by the West posed a threat to the CSTO.
