«I regret to say that Washington is deeper slipping into a primitive ideological cliches of «cold war», which is completely divorced from reality. The imposition of the Balkan countries frankly destructive «either with the West or with Russia» will inevitably lead to increased tension on the European continent, destabilizie the situation in the region and in individual States. In this widely held thesis about the alleged inevitability of the accession of all South-Eastern Europe in NATO, «selling» projects based on unfair competition and contrary to economic logic,» said the foreign Ministry.
