The main topics of discussion at the forthcoming NATO-Russia Council will be the fighting in the Donbas region and the implementation of the Minsk agreements. This is the first meeting in two years and will take place on April 20th at NATO headquarters in Brussels, NATO spokeswoman Carmen Romero confirmed on April 13th.
According to her, during the meeting the sides will also discuss the military activities of NATO and Russia, focus on "transparency and risks reduction", and will also talk about the situation in Afghanistan and terrorist threats.
The activities of the NATO-Russia Council never officially ceased. The last meeting took place in June 2014. Relations between Moscow and NATO have since deteriorated due to the armed conflict in eastern Ukraine and the annexation of Crimea.
