SUBJECT: TFGG01: RUSSIAN AMBASSADOR ROGOZIN RESCINDS
REQUEST FOR EXTRAORDINARY NRC MEETING

1. (SBU) On Monday, August 18, the Permanent Representative
of the Russian Federation to NATO, Ambassador Dmitry Rogozin,
circulated a letter to the Deputy Secretary General and
distributed to all delegations rescinding his request for an
extraordinary meeting of the NATO-Russia Council (NRC). The
text of the letter follows.

2. (SBU) Brussels, "18" August, 2008

Dear Mr. Deputy Secretary General,

In view of continuing uncertainty regarding our request to
convene the NRC extraordinary meeting on events in and around
South Ossetia I revoke this application as irrelevant under
the present circumstances. Making our request we proceeded
from a clear understanding that extraordinary meetings of the
NRC provided for in the Organizational arrangements are
needed to exchange opinions on topical issues in the
framework of Russia-NATO political dialogue and have to be
treated as a matter of urgency by all NRC member states. It
is of particular importance at a time when our positions
significantly differ.

Please, distribute this letter to all NRC delegations.

Sincerely yours,

/s/

D. ROGOZIN
