The North Atlantic Treaty Organisation hopes that the Russian-American summit meeting will strengthen relations and promote cooperation between Russia and the North Atlantic Alliance. This viewpoint was voiced on Wednesday by a high-ranking NATO official. He said that now intensive preparations are under way for a visit to Russia by NATO Secretary General George Robertson. The visit is scheduled for November 21 through 23. Its agenda is prepared with account for the negotiations between the Russian and American presidents, said the NATO official.
