Russia says move to cap its NATO mission has Cold War echoes

MOSCOW (Reuters) - A move by NATO to cap the size of Russia’s diplomatic mission at the alliance’s Brussels headquarters has echoes of the Cold War, RIA news agency quoted Russian Foreign Ministry Alexei Meshkov as saying on Friday.

“This decision is very strange and smacks strongly of the Cold War era,” he said, referring to a decision that is part of moves by NATO to limit the size of other diplomatic missions at its headquarters as well.
