Moscow: NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said Wednesday following talks with Russia at the military alliance's headquarters in Brussels.

NATO was prepared to negotiate with Russia about military exercises, arms control and missile deployments, he said —but it won't allow Moscow to decide which countries can join the alliance.

"There is a real risk for new armed conflict in Europe," Stoltenberg said at an availability following the meeting.

"There are significant differences between NATO allies and Russia. Our differences will not be easy to bridge, but it is a positive sign that all NATO allies and Russia sat down around the same table and engaged on substantive topics."
