"Following consultations with Russia, we have agreed to hold a meeting of the NATO-Russia Council at Ambassadorial level," Stoltenberg said in a statement adding that "this meeting will take place in the next two weeks at the NATO headquarters in Brussels."

"The NATO-Russia Council will discuss the crisis in and around Ukraine and the need to fully implement the Minsk Agreements.
