Russia and NATO on Wednesday finished drafting the main documents for an upcoming meeting of the Russia-NATO Council, Moscow's envoy to NATO Dmitry Rogozin said.
The Russia-NATO Council summit will be held on November 20 in Lisbon. Russian President Dmitry Medvedev is due to take part in the top-level gathering for the first time since the August 2008 war between Russia and Georgia, which soured Russia's relations with the alliance.
"We finalized the drafts of the main documents for the Russia-NATO summit late Wednesday," Rogozin wrote in his Twitter blog. "It should be a very productive summit."
Moscow hopes that the summit in Lisbon will finally put an end to the post-Cold War period and will set guidelines toward a strategic partnership between Russia and NATO.
NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen earlier said the alliance hoped to work with Russia on a variety of issues, including the European missile defense.
