NATO Deputy Secretary General Alexander Vershbow has welcomed Moscow’s proposal to host the May conference on European security.

“I expect the Moscow conference in May will come up,” he told Russian media, adding: “At this  point, the  secretary  general has  not made  a  decision whether he will be able to participate, and of course each of the allies will make  their own  decision about  the level  of representation.”

“I look forward to hear more from my Russian interlocutors about the agenda and the goals of the conference,” he said.

Russia’s Deputy Defense Minister Anatoly Antonov said earlier the Euro Defense Conference on March 23-24 was to bridge the gap between Europe and Russia.
