Today we will talk about NATO. Foreign ministers of the NATO countries and Russia will meet in Greece on June 27, the first such high-level talks since the August conflict in S. Ossetia last year.

As a matter of fact, the sides had planned to hold the meeting in May, but Moscow postponed it after NATO expelled two Russian diplomats in a spying scandal and organized a military exercise in Georgia. Our guest today is the Russian representative to NATO - Dmitry Rogozin.
