MOSCOW, December 16 (RIA Novosti) - Russian President Dmitry Medvedev and the NATO chief will on Wednesday meet in Moscow to discuss the situations in Afghanistan and Iran, a European security treaty and other issues, a Kremlin source said.

Anders Fogh Rasmussen has been pushing for ties with Russia to be normalized ever since he became the alliance's secretary general on August 1, 2009.

Medvedev and Rasmussen will also discuss anti-terrorism efforts and the fight against drug trafficking, piracy and ways to deal with the aftermath of natural and man-caused disasters, the source also said, adding that Medvedev's initiative to adopt a new pan-European security treaty will be a priority at the talks.

On Wednesday Rasmussen will also hold talks with Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Sergei Mironov, the speaker of the Federation Council, the upper house of Russia's parliament.

His Thursday's schedule will include meetings with Boris Gryzlov, speaker of the State Duma, the lower house of Russia's parliament, and Russia's security chief Nikolai Patrushev. Rasmussen will also address students of the international relations university MGIMO.
