NATO-Russia Council to discuss INF Treaty today
The suspension of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty will dominate the NATO-Russia Council’s meeting, which will be held today in Brussels.
The meeting will be held at the level of ambassadors and Russia will be represented by Acting Permanent Representative to NATO Yuri Gorlach.
"The sides are planning to outline each others’ positions on the INF Treaty, we do not expect any real agreements. They will also discuss military activity in Europe and may mention the situation in Ukraine as well," TASS cited a diplomatic source in Brussels as saying.
On June 28, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Alexander Grushko said that Russia planned to discuss NATO’s military buildup on the eastern flank and the INF Treaty at the NRC meeting.
