NATO Secretary General warns Russia of Alliance's 'defensive measures'

Secretary-General of NATO Jens Stoltenberg warned Russia that the Alliance would take defensive measures if Russia does not return to compliance with the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF).

He noted that "there are no signs of Moscow's desire to fulfill the terms of the missile deal so far, although "time is running out."

"The allies call on Russia again to fully and transparently comply with the Treaty," said Stoltenberg at a meeting of the NATO-Russia Council, reports Interfax news agency.

Earlier, on June 26, NATO countries agreed on political and military measures in case of termination of the INF Treaty.
