ST. PETERSBURG, May 23. /ITAR-TASS/. Moscow is prepared for a Russia-NATO Council meeting, but a concrete date is not set yet, Deputy Foreign Minister Alexei Meshkov said on Friday.
“For the last three weeks we have been seeking to hold this meeting as quickly as possible, we were prepared to hold it even yesterday or today. Certainly, we do not refuse to hold it at a later date, but it is need to find a mutually acceptable date now,” the high-ranking diplomat noted, adding: “I am not prepared to say whether it will be held next week, May 27 [the date NATO proposes] does not suit us.”
