Russia, NATO to discuss military ties
Moscow: A NATO delegation will visit Russia on Thursday to discuss cooperation on the fight against sea piracy and the situation in Afghanistan, the Defence Ministry said.
During their three-day visit, NATO officials, led by chairman of the NATO Military Committee Adm Giampaolo di Paola, will meet with Chief of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces Gen Nikolai Makarov and other senior military officials.
"The sides are planning to review the preliminary results of Russia-NATO cooperation in 2010 and discuss the prospects of future interaction in various areas," the ministry said in a statement.
"The discussions will focus on the fight against sea piracy, logistics, and the situation in Afghanistan," the statement said.
NATO froze ties with Russia following the August 2008 armed conflict with Georgia and the recognition by Moscow of Georgia`s breakaway regions of Abkhazia and South Ossetia.
However, Russia-NATO relations have improved over the last year as a result of a course towards "resetting" thorny relations between Moscow and Washington taken by Russian President Dmitry Medvedev and his US counterpart Barack Obama.
