The meeting of a large Russian-French inter-parliamentary commission can take place as early as 2019, Leonid Slutsky, head of the Duma’s international affairs committee, told reporters.
“There are plans for a meeting of the commission. “We are waiting for the visit of the French parliamentary delegation headed by the National Assembly Speaker Richard Ferrand to Russia,” said the deputy. – The terms are still being agreed and worked out. We will strive for a commission to be held this year. ”
The Big Inter-Parliamentary Commission is the main body of cooperation on the parliamentary line. The 17th meeting of the commission was held on February 6, 2013 in Paris. Further contacts in this format were frozen on the initiative of the French side in connection with the Ukrainian crisis.
