    The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) is looking for a productive relationship with Russia, NATO Deputy Secretary General Rose Gottemoeller said on Tuesday.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Earlier in the day, the head of the Russian Foreign Ministry's Department of European Cooperation (DEC), Andrey Kelin, said military-to-military dialogue within the NATO-Russia Council needs to be restored to alleviate tensions in Europe.

    ​At the same time, the official noted that NATO must take strong deterrence steps to defend against "Russia's aggressive actions near the borders of NATO."
