ROME, August 6 (Itar-Tass) - Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Tuesday that the Russia-NATO Council was not using its potential fully.
“We agree that the potential of the Russia-NATO Council is not being used in full measure, especially when it comes to advancement of joint projects in areas where our interests coincide. However, there are areas in which we still have differences,” Lavrov said after a meeting of Russian and Italian foreign and defense ministers held in the “2 plus 2” format.
“A political dialogue should promote trust and should contribute to a search for the common denominator,” Lavrov added.
“We discussed how to advance our partnership with NATO, build practical interaction and develop a political dialogue,” Lavrov added.
