MOSCOW (Sputnik) - NATO's non-expansion and non-deployment of weapons posing threat to Russia's security near its borders will be the issues of utmost importance for Moscow at the upcoming talks on security guarantees with the United States, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Saturday.
Zakharova said her comment was in response to statements emerging in the US and other alliance countries that NATO's non-expansion will be off the table during the security talks.
"The non-expansion of NATO and nonappearance of weapon systems threatening our security close to our borders will be the key issues at the upcoming talks with the US and NATO. Those who have not yet grasped the idea of Russia's stance must be very clear about it," Zakharova said.
