Germany Wants to Resume the NATO-Russia Council
Published 31-07-2015, 15:37
Germany is arguing with partners of the North Atlantic Alliance on the issue of resuming the Russia-NATO Council: Germany stands ‘for’, but not all of the partners in the organization agree, news agency DPA reports, referring to Germany's ambassador to NATO Martin Erdmann.

"There is no consensus at present, but the situation is developing,” Erdmann said.

The NATO-Russia Council was established in 2002, with the last meeting at diplomatic level held in June 2014. Since then, the dialogue between Russia and NATO has been frozen; the reason for this was the conflict in Ukraine.

According to Erdmann, many NATO members regret lack of dialogue with Russia. The list of countries which are opposed to the resumption of the Council was not disclosed, but the agency notes that it is mainly the countries of Eastern Europe.

The alliance board can be convened again only when all members of the alliance agree unanimously.
