No point in NATO-Russia Council meeting at this moment - Grushko

The possibility to call a NATO-Russia Council (NRC) meeting exists even amidst the Ukrainian crisis but so far Moscow sees no common topics for the dialogue, said Russia's Ambassador to NATO Alexander Grushko.

The possibility to call a NATO-Russia Council (NRC) meeting exists even amidst the Ukrainian crisis but so far Moscow sees no common topics for the dialogue, said Russia's Ambassador to NATO Alexander Grushko.

The ambassador responded affirmatively to a question about the possibility of calling a NRC meeting.

At the same time he said: "Now, after the (NATO) summit, I simply see no topic that we could discuss, meaning added value. The NATO position is absolutely clear."

"It was not us who broke off cooperation. If NATO has an interest in discussing some topics with us, we will certainly see what a meeting of a body such as the NRC could yield," Grushko said at a roundtable in Moscow on Friday.
