    The Russia-NATO Council’s work should be based on the principles of consensus and equal rights, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Wednesday.

    BUDAPEST (Sputnik) – The Russia-NATO Council’s work should be based on the principles of consensus and equal rights, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Wednesday.

    “We have a general understanding that the work of the Russia-NATO Council should be guided under all circumstances by agreed upon principles that suggest equal rights and consensus,” Lavrov said after talks with Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto in Budapest.

    The NATO chief stated that he would report to the ministers that while the council meeting did not help solve all problems between the alliance and Russia, it was nevertheless useful and included frank and open discussions on various issues.
