Russia will respond to NATO’s armament buildup, Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Thursday.

"If their [NATO’s] choice is in armament buildup and aggressive rhetoric, we won’t leave this unanswered," Zakharova said.

"The consultations with the alliance on the content and dates of the meeting continue," the diplomat said.

"We do not rule out a possibility that the NATO-Russia council could be convened soon after the upcoming Warsaw summit," she said. "The central theme of the meeting will be the decisions of the Warsaw meeting on strengthening the eastern flank of this bloc and the aftermath for all aspects of the European security."
