Russian General Staff chief to talk missile defense in Brussels

Russian General Staff Chief, Army General Nikolai Makarov, will discuss Russia-NATO cooperation in missile defense and other international security issues with his NATO counterparts on Wednesday, the Russian Defense Ministry said.

A two-day NATO-Russia Council meeting at the level of chiefs of staff begins in Brussels on Wednesday.

Russia and NATO agreed to cooperate on a European missile shield during the NATO-Russia Council summit in Lisbon in November 2010.

NATO insists there should be two independent systems that exchange information, while Russia favors a joint system with full-scale interoperability.
