MOSCOW, August 25 (RIA Novosti) - Dmitry Rogozin, Russia's envoy to NATO, will discuss the future for Russian-NATO cooperation with the country's leadership on Monday, a day later than scheduled.

On Sunday, Rogozin held talks with the leader of Georgia's breakaway republic of Abkhazia, Sergei Bagapsh. He may also meet with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev.

Russia's Defense Ministry temporarily suspended military cooperation Thursday with the military alliance ahead of a political decision being made by the Russian government.

"Cooperation with NATO is a complex issue, and until Russia's political leaders have made a decision on what is involved, the Defense Ministry has suspended military cooperation with the alliance," Rogozin said.

NATO foreign ministers said after talks on August 19 that the alliance was freezing contacts with Russia until Russian troops had pulled out of Georgia, but stopped short of taking further measures against Moscow.
