Latvia Is Invited To Take Part In the Consultations Of Defense Ministries
August 16, 2016 15:13


Russia has invited Latvia to take part in the consultations of defense ministries of the Baltic states which will be held in Moscow in September. This was stated by the Head of the Main Directorate of International Military Cooperation of the Ministry of Defense of Russia Sergei Koshelev, as “RIA Novosti” reports. The note with an invitation was given to the Defense Attaché of the Embassy of Latvia in Russia and the Military Attaché at the Russian Embassy in Latvia.

He also noted that the messages of the Latvian mass-media about the absence of a relevant invitation were “unfounded”, because the initiative of the Russian security agency on holding of the corresponding consultations was launched at a meeting of NATO - Russia Council that was held in Brussels in July.

The idea has also been confirmed at the meeting of the Main Directorate of International Military Cooperation of the Russian Defense Ministry and the Main Operations Directorate of the General Staff of the Armed Forces in Moscow with the accredited military attaches of foreign countries on July 29, as Koshelev added.

At the same time, the Estonian Prime Minister Taavi Rõivas announced the refusal of the country to negotiate with Russia on cooperation in the sphere of defense. According to him, “if Russia’s desire to increase the security is sincere, my recommendation is simply to find the transponder button in the plane and push it” - he said, as “Interfax” reports with a reference to BNS.
