US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will also take part at the session in Brussels, before heading to Russian Federation, according to The National.
Pompeo cancelled a visit to Moscow on Monday and stopped in Brussels instead, en route to the Black Sea resort of Sochi for meetings with Russian President Vladimir Putin and Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.
A senior State Department official wouldn't say if the long-awaited release of that report is why Pompeo is now ready to head to Moscow.
"We are very anxious about the risk of a conflict happening by accident with an escalation that is unintended on either side but ends with some kind of conflict", Hunt said.
For Pompeo, "it's incredibly hard because the interlocutors on the other side don't know who speaks for the United States", Katz said.
