Canada Blocks Three Documents for Russia-NATO Council Meeting


BRUSSELS — Canada has blocked the adoption of three documents for a ministerial meeting of the Russian-NATO Council scheduled for December 4, Russia’s NATO envoy Dmitry Rogozin told Itar-Tass on Tuesday after an emergency session of the Council at the level of envoys in Brussels.

“Canada’s actions evoke most different reactions in Brussels,” he said.

At the same time a reliable source in NATO expressed the hope that officials will manage to coordinate the documents and the current situation will not hamper the ministerial meeting on December 4.

According to the existing information, the two parties were drafting three documents, including that on the intention of Russia and NATO to conduct the first-ever joint survey of security threats and a protocol on amendments to the work of the Russia-NATO Council.

The ministerial meeting will be the first official meeting of such level after the conflict in the Caucasus.
