"NATO countries declared Russia an enemy long before the upcoming summit", said Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov at a press conference after the meeting of Foreign Ministers of Caspian-littoral countries, APA's correspondent in Moscow reports.

According to him, declaring the Russian Federation a danger to NATO will not bring anything new to the activity of the alliance and the US.

"NATO's strengthening on the eastern flank is the continuation of the unacceptable line of the alliance approaching the borders of the Russian Federation. Regardless of the decision of the upcoming summit of the Alliance, NATO decided to gather forces on the eastern flank," said the Russian FM.
