MOSCOW, April 11. /TASS/. The Russia-NATO council will hold a meeting on the level of permanent representatives in the nearest time, Russian Foreign Ministry’s spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Monday.
"After a two-year pause caused by the NATO unilateral policy of the relations’ suspension, Brussels has put forward an initiative to hold a meeting of the Russia-NATO council’s permanent representatives," Zakharova said.
"The session is planned in the nearest future," she said. "Key points of the agenda are the Ukrainian crisis in the framework of the Minsk agreements implementation, the situation in Afghanistan and regional terrorism threats."
"The sides will discuss threats from unprecedented NATO military forces buildup, including in the regions bordering with Russia," Zakharova said. "We will establish further dialogue basing on real NATO actions and in strict compliance with the alliance’s readiness to the equal cooperation towards peace and stability in the Euro-Atlantic region.".
