RIGA, April 19 /TASS/. A forthcoming meeting of the Russia-NATO Council is unlikely to bring about any fundamental changes but may still give an impetus to dialogue, Raimonds Jansons, the press secretary of the Latvian Foreign Ministry, told TASS on Tuesday.
The forthcoming meeting is unlikely to bring about any fundamental changes in the Russia-NATO relations because it is going to be the first in a long period of time. But we assume that it is going to give an impetus to resuming the format of regular meetings in future, Jansons said adding he did not know how often such meetings should take place.
The Russia-NATO Council will meet in Brussels on April 20 at the level of ambassadors. NATO froze all practical cooperation with Russia in April 2014 after Crimea’s reunification with Russia. However, the sides decided to preserve the Russia-NATO Council with an aim to keep the channels of political dialogue open.
