“The European Union (EU) supports the discussion of European security within the existing formats.”
The statement came from EU foreign policy spokesman Peter Stano, RIA Novosti reported.
“The Helsinki Final Act and the Paris Charter offered us the basic principles on which European security is built. To this end, we have developed a number of confidence-building mechanisms. And in addition to the NATO-Russia Council, the OSCE offers mechanisms that remain fundamental in any interaction with Russia, ”he said.
According to him, the position of the European Union is that every sovereign state has the right to freely choose its foreign, security policy and alliances: “Russia must understand and respect this.”
