Alliance decides to reconvene NATO-Russia Counci

The Alliance has decided to reconvene NATO-Russia Council to maintain political contacts, Jens Stoltenberg said, Sputnik News reports.

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said that the Alliance permanent member states are looking into prospects of restoring NATO-Russia ties.“We decided to define how to better use Russia-NATO Council for political cooperation with Moscow,” he said during a press-conference in Brussels.

Stoltenberg also noted that the date of the new Russia-NATO summit will be decided later.

The NATO-Russia council, which was launched in 2002, suspended all operations in April 2014 over NATO’s allegations of Moscow’ involvement in the Ukrainian crisis — a claim that Moscow had repeatedly denied.
