MOSCOW, September 7 (Itar-Tass) — The upcoming meeting between Russian President Dmitry Medvedev and participants in the 10th session of the Russia-France Cooperation Council on Security (RFCCS) is to deal with a survey of the most significant aspects of the bilateral agenda, the functioning of mechanisms and principles for the ensurance of strategic security, as well as prospects for a further deepening of Russo-French interaction within the framework of Russia-European Union and Russia - NATO relations, the Kremlin press service announced.
"Meetings between the Presidents of Russia and France and Foreign and Defence ministers of the two countries -- participants in annual sessions of RFCCS -- are regular and are indicative of priority attention being devoted by the Heads of State to exchanges of views within the scope of this dialogue format on strategic aspects of bilateral cooperation and international agenda," the Kremlin press service pointed out.
"Beginning from November 2002 -- the time when the first session of he RFCCS was held in Paris -- ministerial meetings have been held alternately in the capitals of the two countries and have become a unique forum for maintaining and strengthening our partnership interaction on topical matters relating to the ensurance of stability and security in Europe and the world," the press service announcement emphasized.
