BRUSSELS, November 29. /TASS/. It is unreasonable to spend much time discussing the Russia-NATO Council agenda, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Alexei Meshkov said following a meeting of Russia and the European Union’s political directors.
"Russia is ready to participate in a Russia-NATO Council meeting but others have been paying too much attention to the agenda issue. We believe that both Russia and NATO are capable of discussing the issues that are of interest to us, without wasting time discussing numerous agenda items. I can’t say when the Council members meet, our counterparts in Brussels should make a decision on that. Russia-NATO Council is a working body so it would be strange if its regular meetings had to be agreed on by the member states’ leaders," Meshkov told reporters.
The previous meeting of the NATO-Russia Council at ambassadorial level was held in Brussels in July following NATO Warsaw summit.
Since then, both sides have been repeatedly expressing readiness to hold another meeting but the date has not been set yet.
