Russian Defense Minister Igor Sergeyev will travel to Brussels next month for a meeting of the NATO-Russia council, followed by talks with his British counterpart Geoff Hoon in London, ITAR-TASS reported Saturday.
Kosovo and deepening ties between the Alliance and Moscow are likely to dominate the agenda of the December 4-6 visit, the news agency said.
