Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has called on NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg not to forget to discuss with Russia decisions relating to the work of the NATO-Russia Council, recalling that this body works on the basis of consensus.
The foreign minister expressed surprise about the statement made by Stoltenberg that NATO has decided to call a meeting of the NATO-Russia Council at the level of the ambassadors before the alliance's July summit.
"Why did he say that? The NATO-Russia Council works on the basis of a consensus. If they want to discuss it, let [him] discuss it with us, not try to get to the microphone," Lavrov told Interfax.
