He has proposed to his European colleagues to recognize that opportunities to develop coordinated decisions in recent years was less. “Already heard word about a new cold war, which means that every responsible politician must turn to the lessons of the cold war – the second half of the twentieth century,” – said Naryshkin.
In his view, the main lesson of the cold war was that it was completed through trust – “the trust that was painstakingly established in the framework of the conference on security and cooperation in Europe”, without which “was not created by an organization such as the OSCE.”

“NATO does not produce security, and confrontation. But after the cold war NATO could be another. But, unfortunately, did not become”, – Naryshkin said.
He noted that the diversity of contemporary approaches to European security ultimately can be reduced to two. “One is associated with the tradition of the OSCE, the other with the practice of NATO. One focused on dialogue and mutually acceptable result, the other – as befits a military unit 1949 edition, focuses on one-sided victory”, – said the speaker of the state Duma.
According to him, this second comes from the double standards, the logic of subordination, and the words about human rights, about European values for him nothing more than a Ruse, a smokescreen.
