PRESS RELEASE


Germany To Sponsor a Germany-U.S.-Russia Parliamentary Meeting

April 3, 2015 (EIRNS)—Konstantin Kosachev, the head of the International Committee of the Russian Federation Council, said that representatives from upper and lower houses of the U.S. and Russian parliaments might hold a meeting this summer, either in June or July, according to Sputnik.

"The first expanded contact between the Russian and U.S. lawmakers is slated for early May in Berlin at the trilateral parliamentary meeting, Germany-Russia-the United States,"

Alexei Pushkov, the head of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the State Duma, the lower house of Russia’s parliament, wrote on his Twitter account.

Meanwhile, Congressman Dana Rohrabacher (R-Calif.) met with Kosachev and others at an inter-parliamentary meeting in Moscow this week, expressing his disgust with the lying anti-Russian propaganda that dominates the U.S. media and political discourse. Kosachev thanked Rohrabacher for his efforts to restore the inter-parliamentary discussions between the countries,

"This with all certainty was not a result of the Russian initiative. We have always committed to the most open wide and open dialogue,"

Kosachev said. We consider it a very important source for solving common problems and search for joint solutions."

Rohrabacher said: "The children of our countries will pay for the stupidity of what is going on in our relations," and laughed about the U.S. leadership which called Russia, the greatest threat to the United States.
