The meeting will take place at ambassadorial level with Ukraine conflict high on the agenda
NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg says preparations are ongoing for another meeting of the NATO-Russia Council, which is due to take place shortly after the Warsaw Summit.
The Alliance chief noted that the "NATO-Russia Council has an important role to play as a forum for dialogue and information exchange, to reduce tensions and to increase predictability."
"Our practical cooperation with Russia remains suspended, but we are keeping channels for political dialogue open," Stoltenberg stressed.
The participants of the NATO-Russia Council are to focus on Ukraine crisis and the implementation of the Minsk peace agreements.
In April this year NATO and Russia held the first formal meeting in two years after their relations were suspended over the illegal annexation of Ukraine's Crimea.
"Serious disagreement remain, and the alliance does not see a way to begin military cooperation with the Kremlin" Stoltenberg said on April 20 after the talks with Moscow officials.
