Kosachev: no one subject should not remain outside of the dialogue of Russia and the USA


MOSCOW, July 3. /TASS/. Russia and USA need to discuss many issues in the forthcoming meeting with the delegation of American parliamentarians. It is important that none of the imposed taboo, even if the participants are disagree. This opinion was expressed by Chairman of the Federation Council Committee on international Affairs Konstantin Kosachev in an interview to the newspaper “Izvestia” published Tuesday on the newspaper’s website.

“There are a large number of topics, and none of them should be taboo. None of them should stay out of our dialogue – even when we radically disagree in the estimates,” – said Kosachev. He also noted that the meeting is unlikely to be aimed at solving specific problems, as it is the first time in several years.

“The main thing now is to feel an interest in this communication, the willingness to give them a regular. This, in turn, will take us to a deeper understanding. And, perhaps, some additional ideas and agreement on more specific issues – whether the situation on the Korean Peninsula, Iran, the middle East, in Syria, around Ukraine”, – said the Senator will also meet with members of the American delegation.

“For me, the main purpose of the upcoming meeting is to make sure that the one on the other hand there is interest to institutionalize this dialogue, make it systematic, regular and focused on the end result. I hope that the American side see this as the same meaning”, concluded Kosachev.

The delegation of American parliamentarians is on a visit to Russia from June 30 to July 5.
