Russia has yet to receive a reply from NATO to its proposal to sign an agreement on the prevention of "dangerous" military activities in border areas, Russia's envoy to the alliance said on Wednesday.

Dmitry Rogozin did not indicate when the proposal was made but said Moscow "is still waiting for an answer."

He said similar confidence-building agreements "exist between Russia and the United States, and Russia and China."

"We do not understand why our western neighbors, primarily East European and Baltic States, are so reluctant to sign any agreements on confidence-building measures."

The U.S.-Soviet Agreement on the Prevention of Dangerous Military Activities was signed in June 1989.

Under the accord, the parties were obliged to take necessary measures to prevent such activities and to ensure peaceful resolution of any incident which may arise as a result of an unintentional entry by personnel, ship, aircraft or ground hardware of the armed forces of one country into the national territory of the other country.

The agreement specifically sought to reduce the risk of unintended military confrontation in regions such as the Persian Gulf, where Soviet and U.S. forces often operated close to each other.
