    Russian Deputy Defense Minister Alexander Fomin expects NATO-Russia Council to resume its work within two years.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Russia and NATO will need two years at most to restore their cooperation in the format of the NATO-Russia Council (NRC), Deputy Defense Minister Alexander Fomin said in an interview out Wednesday.

    "I am sure that we will restore our relationship with NATO and we will return to the wonderful form of cooperation that is the Russia-NATO Council… I think that it will happen in the next year or two at most," Fomin told Germany’s Deutsche Welle broadcaster.
