NATO's secretary-general hopes that the alliance's foreign ministers will endorse a quick resumption of official contacts with Russia, which have been suspended since the war in Georgia last August, a spokesman said Wednesday. Alliance spokesman James Appathurai said the issue of re-engaging with Russia will be one of the two main topics at tomorrow's meeting of NATO foreign ministers. It will be the first such conference to be attended by new US Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. Formal ties between NATO and Russia were suspended following the brief Russo-Georgian war. NATO accused Moscow of using disproportionate force to eject Georgian forces that had shelled and occupied the capital of the breakaway province of South Ossetia. Moscow maintained its military actions were defensive and in response to Georgian aggression.
