NATO's parliamentary assembly on Monday called on members of the Western military alliance to be ready to respond to the "potential threat" of Russian aggression against them. . . .
The declaration expressed regret over "Russia's use of force against its neighbours and attempted intimidation of (NATO) Allies".
It said this had "left NATO no choice but to consider the prospect of aggressive Russian action against an Alliance member as a potential threat, and to adopt measured, proportionate responses".
