Moscow is open for dialogue with the Northern Alliance, including in the Russia-NATO Council format, but the discussions should bring "added value" to bilateral relations, Russia's envoy to NATO Alexander Grushko said Wednesday.

BRUSSELS (Sputnik) — NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said earlier on Wednesday that the Alliance combines deterrence with dialogue in its approach to Russia.

"Russia is open for dialogue…Certainly, the meetings of the Russia-NATO Council should bring added value, taking into account that we had a comprehensive exchange of views on key issues and security threats during the latest meeting on April 20," Grushko told Russian reporters in Brussels.

"Unfortunately, the growing rhetoric about the need to increase NATO military presence in the eastern part of the alliance in order to deter Russia hampers the creation of favorable atmosphere for serious dialogue. Let's see what decisions will be made at NATO foreign ministers' meeting," Grushko stressed.

Foreign ministers of the 28-member military bloc will meet in Brussels on May 19-20.
