Question: NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said that NATO foreign policy heads decided to hold a meeting of the Russia-NATO Council at the ambassadorial level prior to NATO’s Summit in Warsaw on July 8-9. Are we prepared for this?

Sergey Lavrov: Why on earth did he say that? The Russia-NATO Council operates on the basis of consensus. If they want to discuss this, let them discuss this with us instead of commandeering the microphone.
