BRUSSELS, December 9. /TASS/. An ambassadorial meeting of the Russia-NATO Council has been scheduled to be held in Brussels next week, a diplomatic source in Brussels told TASS on Friday.
"The parties are about to set an agreed date and the meeting agenda, the meeting is scheduled for next week," the source said.
However, neither Russia’s diplomatic mission nor NATO headquarters confirmed any decisions made concerning the meeting’s date. "NATO remains open to dialogue with Russia. We have been discussing the date and the agenda of the meeting," a source in NATO headquarters told TASS on Friday.
The previous ambassadorial meeting of the Russia-NATO Council took place on July 13 in Brussels, four days after the NATO summit in Warsaw. Both sides pointed out that the meeting had been held in an open atmosphere and had proved to be useful. According to Russia’s Ambassador to NATO Alexander Grushko, for the first time after the Ukrainian crisis broke out which led NATO to freeze practical cooperation with Russia, the conversation at the Russia-NATO Council meeting "turned into a lively debate rather than being an exchange of monologues." At the same time, all the major differences between Russia and NATO still remain.
