Duma to Work out a consolidated decision on further participation in PACE

On January 9, the State Duma received a letter from PACE Secretary-General Wojciech Sawicki with the proposal to send a Russian delegation to the assembly’s winter session which opens on January 21 in Strasbourg.

Chairman of the State Duma Committee for Foreign Affairs Leonid Slutsky said that in light of this the decision was made to hold expanded consultations involving the Russian Foreign Ministry, senators and representatives for all factions to work out a consolidated position of Russia’s further participation in the PACE’s operation. The general decision may be developed by January 16, deputy Slutsky added.
