But despite of the declaration at this time the negotiations are pending with Moscow about the possibility of Moscow's participation in the "common process of the security system".
"But the negotiations with Russian Federation are at the starting level as yet, "- he said. He noted that the negotiations about this question are pending with Poland and Czech Republic as well.
"We did not start the negotiations with other states on this question yet, "- US high rank said.
