She said that the Russian side proposed establishing a dialogue on broad issues between experts, with the participation of military personnel, and warned that such proposals are "on Mr. Stoltenberg's table."
On Wednesday, the NATO secretary-general told reporters that the alliance regrets that not a single meeting of the Russia-NATO Council has been held since the summer of 2019 because, according to him, Moscow did not agree to the invitation to convene it.
Zakharova expressed that her country will take into account NATO's current confrontational attitude in its foreign policy and military planning.
She considered that the results of the recent meeting of the NATO countries' foreign ministers "did not bring any surprises, once again the inability to give meaning to the future existence of the alliance and to formulate a positive agenda."

The spokeswoman commented that the participants in the meeting agreed on the need to continue to consider Russia as the main challenge to the West's security.
"Neither pandemic, nor infodemic, nor international terrorism, nor migration problems, nor phenomena of the economic and financial crisis in the space of its own states, nothing was presented by the alliance," the spokeswoman stressed.
In her opinion, NATO "continues to justify increased funding for its actions" under the pretext of Moscow's mythical aggression.
She denounced that the Atlantic Alliance has been increasing its military potential as never before since the Cold War, especially, she said, on what they call its "Eastern flank."
