Dmitry Rogozin, Russian ambassador to NATO, proposed concrete steps to build trust and security between Europe, Russia, and the U.S. at an EWI seminar today. The seminar was the third and last in a series of seminars designed to temper tensions between the three powers in the aftermath of the crisis in Georgia. 

Proposals emerging from the discussion, which was conducted under Chatham House rules, included:

  1. A summit of political leaders, including heads of state and heads of economic and regional security organizations, to determine concrete steps towards a new European security architecture, and to prevent bureaucratic systems from slowing down the process;
  2. Establishment of a joint command structure of all relevant actors in Southeast Europe and the Caucasus.
  3. Renovation of the Treaty on Conventional Armed Forces in Europe.
