The Chairman of the State Duma of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation of the seventh convocation. He was elected as part of the federal list of candidates proposed by the All-Russian political party “United Russia”
does not exclude the possibility of holding the meeting of the Commission on Cooperation between the State Duma and the Islamic Consultative Assembly of Iran via videoconference.

“The current pandemic situation does not allow holding the planned personal meeting of the Inter-parliamentary Commission with colleagues from Iran. Taking into account special nature of the inter-parliamentary ties between the State Duma and the Iranian parliament, it would be right to study the possibility of holding this meeting via videoconference,” said Viacheslav Volodin.

The Chairman of the State Duma instructed the State Duma Committee on International Affairs to explore the possibility of holding a meeting of the Inter-parliamentary Commission in that format.
