The statement was made by Russian Minister of Foreign Affairs Sergei Lavrov after meeting with his Belarusian counterpart Vladimir Makei on 15 November, BelTA has learned.

Sergei Lavrov said: “We’ve discussed the situation in relations between our countries and NATO. In particular, we’ve expressed concern about attempts to demonize Russian-Belarusian military cooperation.”

Sergei Lavrov drew attention to the fact that the attempts were particularly noticeable during the Belarusian-Russian strategic army exercise Zapad 2017 in September. In his words, NATO used its propaganda campaign to justify the deployment of additional military assets on its eastern flank.
