DUSHANBE: Russian President Vladimir Putin called NATO a throwback to the Cold War era on Friday but said the Western military alliance can sometimes play a positive role.

"To some degree, under certain circumstances, if it acts on a mandate of U.N. Security Council, NATO can play a positive role. We will develop our relationship with this organisation," Putin told soldiers at a Russian-leased base in Tajikistan.
