MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Meanwhile, the Russian Foreign Ministry said Tuesday that Moscow wants to discuss NATO's plans to deploy four battalions in Baltic States and Poland.
"Military activity, transparency is part of the agenda we would like to see for the NATO-Russia Council," Stoltenberg told reporters.
The NATO chief added that the sides were currently consulting on the meeting's agenda and timing.
The council was created in 2002 as a consultative mechanism. NATO suspended all practical civilian and military cooperation with Russia after the Ukraine crisis broke out in April 2014, although channels for political dialogue and military to military communication remained open.
The first Russia-NATO Council meeting at the level of permanent envoys in two years was held on April 20, but failed to yield any significant results due to the sides’ disagreement on a number of geopolitical issues.
