Russia Sees No Reason for NATO Enlargement: KasyanovVisiting Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Kasyanov said here on Tuesday that Russia could see no reason for NATO enlargement, the CTK news agency reported.
"If NATO is not aimed against Russia, why should it then be further enlarged," Kasyanov made the remark after meeting Czech Senate chairman Petr Pithart.
However, Russia does not perceive the United States and European countries as enemies, he added.
Czech Prime Minister Milos Zeman said earlier after meeting Kasyanov that NATO was not an organization aimed against any country and that in the current situation its priority was to fight against international terrorism.
He said that the Czech Republic appreciated Russia's role in fighting terrorism.
Kasyanov stressed that Russia was trying to consolidate its efforts at fighting international terrorism, which represents a worldwide threat.
Meanwhile, Kasyanov said that an agreement on writing off 46 percent of the debt owed by the former Soviet Union to Czech Republic was reached here on Tuesday.
