Delegations headed by Russian deputy foreign minister Georgy Mamedov and his British counterpart, Kevin Tebbit, held consultations in Moscow yesterday on a broad range of European security issues, including disarmament, the elimination of weapons of mass destruction, amendments to the Conventional Forces in Europe (CFE) treaty, and cooperation between Russia and NATO.
