MOSCOW, December 9 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia will decide on the participation in a Russia-NATO summit after the presidential elections, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said live on the Russia 24 TV news channel on Friday.
“A NATO summit will be held in Chicago in May 2012. NATO partners offered Russia to hold a Russia-NATO summit there as well,” Ryabkov said.
“The holding of the summit depends from the fact, whether this event is filled with content. If we agree on the missile defence problem by this time, it will be easier for us to take a decision in favour of this event,” he noted. “We do not know whether we will agree (on the missile defence), it is unclear yet,” the Russian diplomat said.
“The decision, whether the summit will be held or not, will be taken after the Russian presidential elections in March 2012,” Ryabkov pointed out.
