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.
