NATO-Russia Council met and issued joint statement

Dmitry Medvedev took part in a meeting of the NATO-Russia Council at the level of heads of state and government, whose main theme was Next Steps in NATO-Russia Cooperation. The Russian leader presented his proposals on building further cooperation between Russia and NATO.

Following the meeting, a Joint Statement was adopted by the heads of state and government of the NATO-Russia Council (NRC) members.

The document notes, in particular, that the security of all states in the Euro-Atlantic community is indivisible and the security of NATO and Russia is interlinked.

In addition, the NRC has been tasked with a development of a comprehensive Joint Analysis of the future framework for broader missile defence cooperation.
