[The Voice of Russia] NATO Considers Russia As Its Partner

I feel that these two articles are closely related to each other.  Although I have no idea of details as I am inexpert in politics, I think NATO has a deep connection with the Vatican.  To speak of extremes, NATO might be the military forces for the Vatican.  However, the dark side of the Vatican has been disclosed now and NATO might stay away from it.  If my imagination is right, there is no possibility of World War III.

In spite of some differences in view, NATO considers Russia as its partner.  According to an interview with   “Tchas,” a Latvian journal released on Monday, NATO Deputy Secretary-General Alexander Vershbow     said so.

“We haven’t seen eye to eye in some areas; the Kosovo conflict in 1990s and Libyan conflict in recent years.  On the other hand, we closely worked together in Afghanistan.  We worked together based on an agreement on regime transition and realized a project to train Afghanistan helicopter troops,” Deputy Secretary-General Vershbow says.

According to the deputy secretary-general, there still remains “serious mutual mistrust” between the two countries, but NATO intends to develop closer cooperative ties with Russia.  “As long as we share the stance to combat threats in the 21st century, it is possible that NATO will approach toward Russia in future,” he says.

The deputy secretary-general also hinted the feasibility for NATO and Russia to reach mutual agreement on deployment of a missile-defense system in Europe.  According to him, deployment of a missile-defense system in Eastern Europe will not be a threat to Russia, which has been proved by experts in both countries and has been documented.

The trial of Pope Benedict XVI’s ex-butler Paolo Gabriel, who was arrested on charge of stealing Vatican’s confidential documents, will start on 29th.  The local mass media reported this, citing the information from Vatican’s public relations department.

In April Pope Benedict XVI set up a special commission to probe the leaking of confidential documents to the media.  Leaked documents included information on corruptions and internal conflicts inside the Vatican as well as Pope’s private letters.

As a result of investigation, Gabriel was floated as one of the prime suspects in the incidence of leaking of confidential documents.  The suspect Gabriel was one of the few people who were allowed to enter Pope’s home.
