BRUSSELS, July 13 /TASS/. Military men took part in a meeting of the Russia-NATO Council for the first time after a long interval, Alexander Grushko, Russia’s Permanent Representative to NATO, said after the meeting on Wednesday.
"Military people attended the Russia-NATO Council meeting for the first time after a long interval," Grushko said.
The Russia-NATO Council met for the third time since the start of a crisis in bilateral relations. The first meeting took place on June 2, 2014. The second one was held on April 20 this year.
The Russia-NATO contacts also continued in other formats. The Euro-Atlantic Partnership Council met at the NATO headquarters in Brussels at the level of permanent representatives on June 17, 2014.

Later, Lavrov and Stoltenberg met each other for two more times: in New York on September 29, 2015 and in Munich on February 12, 2016.
