MOSCOW, September 23 (Itar-Tass) — Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov met with NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen to discuss the implementation of the Lisbon summit decisions on cooperation in the area of missile defence, and on the current state in the area of control over conventional arms in Europe, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Friday.
Lavrov and Rasmussen met on Thursday on the sidelines of the 66th session of the United National General Assembly in New York.
They also discussed issues of cooperation within the Russia-NATO Council, the ministry said. “Specific attention was focused on the implementation of the Lisbon summit decisions of cooperation in the area of missile defence, and on the situation in the area of control over conventional arms in Europe,” the ministry noted. “The sides reiterated their interest in further development of political dialogue and practical cooperation in the area of repelling common threats and challenges.”
“The side also exchanged view on acute problems of international and regional security, including the situation in Libya and Kosovo, and stressed the necessity to strictly obey the corresponding resolutions of the United Nations Security Council,” the ministry stressed.
