NATO Deputy Secretary General Alexander Vershbow said this at the joint press conference with Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaite in Vilnius on Thursday, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.
"Russia raises the question that we should cooperate against terrorism and stop our actions taken in response to the aggression against Ukraine. We're not going to make any indulgences. Russia has violated the basic principles of the European security system with its aggression. Even if we better cooperate against terrorism, we are not going to give up our firm response to its aggression and the illegal annexation of Crimea in particular," the NATO Deputy Secretary General said.
