It is time for Europe to sit down with Russia and draw up a new pan-European security pact.  And Russia is ready to negotiate. In 2008, Russian President Vladimir Putin took the initiative and ordered the foreign ministry to draw up a proposal, which the newly elected President Dmitry Medvedev in June of that year took with him on his first foreign visit to Brussels.

Medvedev proposed enshrining in international law the 'principle of security, a legal obligation, under which no state or international organization in the Euro-Atlantic area could strengthen their security at the expense of other countries and organizations.'

The document was very specific, based on the Charter of the UN and grounded in international law. 

Copies were sent to the leaders of the countries concerned, as well as the executive heads of international organizations in the Euro-Atlantic area.
