Kremlin: NATO's attempts to expand influence in Caucasus will not add stability to region

MINSK, 19 March (BelTA) - The North Atlantic Alliance's attempts to expand its presence in the Caucasus are "visible to the naked eye," spokesman for the Russian president Dmitry Peskov told the media, TASS reported.

"NATO's attempts to expand its influence and presence can hardly add  stability to the Caucasus and make the situation more predictable," he said, while commenting on NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg's tour of the Caucasus.

At the same time, the Russian leader's spokesman pointed out that the Caucasus countries have a "sovereign right" to such contacts. He also noted that Russia mainly focuses on the bilateral relations and cooperation with the countries of the region.

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg is currently in Yerevan on an official visit. He visited Azerbaijan  and Georgia.
