In a preview to the event, published on the alliance's website, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said that the bloc is currently "implementing the biggest reinforcement of our collective defence since the end of the Cold War."
Stoltenberg noted that the meeting is taking place as NATO troops are holding drills to make sure that the alliance's collective security is "strong and ready."
The discussion of relations with Russia will come on the heels of German Chancellor Angela Merkel's and US Secretary of State John Kerry's separate visits to Russia over the past weeks. Following the talks between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Kerry, Putin's spokesman said the top US diplomat's visit was "the first sign of understanding that the two great powers must return to normal cooperation."
The alliance has sharply increased its military activities near the Russian border, including a number of large-scale drills in the Baltic states.
Russia has repeatedly denied allegations of involvement in Ukraine's internal affairs and expressed concern over NATO's increased presence in Eastern Europe.
