BUDAPEST, May 25. /TASS/. The work of the Russia-NATO Council should be based on a consensus, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Wednesday after talks with his Hungarian counterpart Peter Szijjartoo.
"We exchanged views on where we are now in what concerns the relations between Russia and the North Atlantic Alliance," Lavrov said. "We have common understanding that the work of the Russia-NATO Council should be based in all the circumstances on the agreed principles that envisage equality and consensus."
Russia’s envoy to NATO Alexander Grushko said on Tuesday there have been no consultations over calling a meeting of the Russia-NATO Council. "No consultations have been held so far. Nor any preparations are being made for such a meeting," Grushko said. "There’ve been no preliminary consultations or requests from NATO, either."
NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said last week that the foreign ministers of the alliance decided to hold a meeting of the Russia-NATO Council before the summit in Warsaw due on July 8-9.
