‘Dangerous neighbor’ Russia is becoming ‘more and more authoritarian’ & NATO should ‘push back', says EU Foreign Minister Borrell

Russia is a "dangerous neighbor," but Brussels must maintain channels of communication with Moscow to solve issues of mutual interest. That's according to the European Union's top diplomat, speaking at a NATO meeting on Wednesday.

Josep Borrell, the EU's High Representative, was speaking before the second day of meetings with NATO foreign ministers, focused on the relationship between Russia and the US-led bloc.

"Russia is a neighbor, a dangerous neighbor, but we have to share with them some issues in which we have common interests, like the nuclear agreement with Iran or climate change," Borrell said. "But, above all that, we have to contain Russia, to push back Russia when it infringes international law."
