WASHINGTON, July 16 (Itar-Tass) - The United States and Russia will conduct in Europe this week the Atlas Vision - 2013 joint military exercise, the press service of the US Army Command in Europe told Itar-Tass.
According to the US State Department, successful missions for the exercise planning were held in March and May. Now it is planned to proceed to the bilateral exercise, which will involve land forces.
