Further Progress on Military Cooperation between NATO and Russia

Senior military officials of NATO and the Russian Federation Defence Ministry, meeting in Moscow on 18 June, achieved significant progress on parameters for establishing a NATO military liaison mission in Moscow by the end of the year. These parameters will now be submitted to the respective NATO and Russian Federation authorities for their consideration and subsequent endorsement by the Permanent Joint Council. This represents another step forward in implementing the provisions of the NATO-Russia Founding Act and will further advance its aims of enhancing dialogue and building trust and confidence through increased military cooperation.
