MOSCOW, 7 July (BelTA) – NATO's actions represent the main threat to the world security in the last few decades. Director of Russia's Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) Sergei Naryshkin made the relevant statement after a joint session of Belarus' State Security Committee (KGB) and Russia's Foreign Intelligence Service on 7 July, BelTA has learned. KGB Chairman Ivan Tertel took part in the session.
Sergei Naryshkin said: “The last 30 years indicate that the rather aggressive policy of the NATO bloc led by the USA represents the main threat, the main destabilizing factor for international security.”
Sergei Naryshkin reminded that political leaders of NATO countries constantly say that NATO is a defensive union. “What defensive tasks did the NATO bloc complete in the last 30 years? There were two threats for the European continent in the last 15 years: the migration crisis of 2015 which affected central and western Europe and terrorism. With what could the NATO bloc counter these two real threats? Nothing. At the same time these 30 years or even the last 20 years saw aggression in Yugoslavia, Iraq, Libya, and Syria. It is the true face of NATO,” he stated.
“Events, which are happening now and have been happening for the last few years, only reinforce this negative trend. One can say that the NATO summit in Madrid showed their true colors about a week and a half ago,” Sergei Naryshkin noted.
“It is obvious for us that the NATO bloc is waging a hybrid war both against Russia and against our ally –the Republic of Belarus,” Sergei Naryshkin concluded.
