Russian Deputy FM arrives in Brussels to attend Russia-NATO Council
Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov arrived in Brussels to attend today's meeting of the Russia-NATO Council.
"The purpose of my arrival is to attend the Council’s meeting," TASS cited the official as saying. "We hope that even if we do not chart a way out of the crisis situation for the INF Treaty, at least we will feel that all is not hopeless," he said.
Ryabkov added that the meeting of the Russia-NATO Council on the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty is especially important in the context of Western countries boycotting the Russian Defense Ministry’s briefing on the Russian 9M729 missile.
