In the case from the U.S. Secretary of state John Kerry, with whom he got off the plane in Moscow, when last week arrived on a visit to Russia, were the documents to negotiate. About it journalists were reported by the Deputy foreign Minister of Russia Sergey Ryabkov.
“[There were] documents to conversations with Putin and Lavrov,” — said Ryabkov, reports TASS. The Deputy foreign Minister stressed that he could not say specifically.
“I don’t know how it was perceived, but that the conversations were serious and there was no attempt to get away from pressing issues with any one nor on the other hand — it’s a fact,” added Ryabkov.
Earlier on the red suitcase Kerry drew the attention of the President of Russia Vladimir Putin during a meeting in the Kremlin. “I saw your arrival and upset. On the one hand, it is very affordable. On the other, no one really suitcase make to the Secretary of state? <…> I thought you something of value brought, which could not be trusted. Or was there money?” the Prime Minister asked, jokingly suggesting that money is needed Kerry to “bargain” in the negotiations in Moscow.
In response, Kerry promised that when he will be able to speak with Putin alone, he will show the contents of the suitcase. “You will be surprised. It will be a surprise for you, a pleasant surprise,” said Kerry at a meeting in the Kremlin.
Earlier question about red suitcase of the Secretary of state was asked the press Secretary.
The President’s press Secretary Dmitry Peskov told journalists that he doesn’t know the contents of the suitcase the US Secretary of state John Kerry. “I don’t know what’s in it <…> it is not our issue, it’s more a question of the delegation of the Secretary of state or himself” — quoted Peskov, “RIA Novosti”.
