BRUSSELS (Sputnik), Alexander Mosesov — According to the official, the session usually lasts about two hours and is held at the ambassadorial level.
"Yes, it is correct that the NATO-Russia summit will be held on Wednesday, April 20. It was only agreed today," the NATO official said.
The official also confirmed that the summit would be held in the NATO Brussels headquarters.
The format was suspended in 2014 amid strained relations over the Ukrainian crisis, as the alliance accused Moscow of the involvement in the conflict.
Russia has repeatedly dismissed the allegations of meddling in Ukrainian affairs and stressed that NATO's military expansion and increased presence near Russian borders undermines regional security.
