NATO and Russia have agreed to resume military ties after a 10-month hiatus caused by the war between Russia and Georgia, the alliance's secretary-general, Jaap de Hoop Scheffer, said Saturday. Although political ties have thawed considerably over the past five months, there have been no formal military contacts since the war last August. Scheffer, who is ending his term as NATO head, said Saturday it had been his ambition to leave his successor with a NATO-Russia Council that was "up and running." He said that aim had been achieved at a meeting of NATO foreign ministers with their Russian counterpart on the Greek island of Corfu. It was the first high-level meeting since the Georgian war.
