NATO, Russia to Hold Council Meeting This Week

NATO, Russia to Hold Council Meeting This Week

BRUSSELS - NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg on Tuesday announced in a statement that NATO would hold a meeting of the NATO-Russia Council this week.
The meeting will take place on March 30 at the NATO headquarters in Brussels, one day ahead of NATO's foreign ministers meeting.
"Following consultations with the members of the NATO-Russia Council, I have invited them to a meeting at ambassadorial level," said the NATO chief.
NATO suspended practical cooperation with Russia in April 2014 in response to the Ukraine crisis, and the NATO-Russia Council was the only channel left open.

The NATO-Russia Council, which was established in 2002, was conceived as a mechanism for consultation, consensus-building, cooperation, joint decision and joint action. (Xinhua)
