“The actions of the US authorities in this case are unacceptable and clearly demonstrate that
there are forces in the USA ready to do everything possible to increase
tensions in our bilateral relations, to exclude the possibility of a normal
dialogue between our countries. I hope that the US side will provide clear
explanations of the cause of the incident, although judging from the latest
events (in particular, with non-issuance of visas to some members of the Russian delegation who planned to take part in the work of the first committee
of the UN General Assembly), this is hard to believe,” said Sergei Neverov
Sergei Ivanoviсh .
He recalled that ”Inga Iumasheva
Inga Albertovna in the State Duma coordinates the work of the group on interaction with the US Congress, and she arrived to participate in the Fort Ross Dialogue forum at the invitation of an American non-profit organization.“
“In such situations, non-profit organizations should fully ensure the visit, and, as we see, that has not been done,” stressed the Deputy Chairman of the State Duma.
“Parliamentarians, including members of the State Duma regularly receive invitations from public organizations to various countries and the incident with Inga Iumasheva signals that we should all think at first whether we should participate in such events in the United States,” emphasized Sergei Neverov.
