NATO’s membership offer for Montenegro will trigger Russia's response — (Kremlin)

NATO’s offer for Montenegro to join the alliance will result in Russia’s response measures, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Wednesday.

"Moscow has always noted at various levels that the continuing expansion of NATO and NATO’s military infrastructure to the East, of course, cannot but lead to response actions from the East, namely, the Russian side in ensuring security interests and supporting the parity of interests," Peskov said.

The presidential spokesman however said it was early to speak about the particular steps. The president, the Foreign Ministry and Defense Ministry are yet to announce their stance on the issue, he added.

Peskov declined to comment on whether Russian President Vladimir Putin was expected to react in this regard. "Now, there are other priorities," he added.

Putin is due to deliver state of the national address on December 3.
