MOSCOW, November 23 (Itar-Tass) — Head of the Kremlin administration Sergei Naryshkin has refuted speculations about an alleged antagonism between the presidential administration of the Russian Federation and the government staff.
"I am stating quite definitely that there has been no antagonism if only because there is no ground for thatt,"Naryshkn said in an interview published in Rossiiskaya Gazeta on Wednesday.
"The government staff and the presidential administration are two entities that ensure the work of the two top state-power institutions; the President and the Government are working concertedly, on the basis of a common programme and relying on a common political platform," he added.
"Such rumours are being spread by people who wish to appear, in the eyes of those around them, as informed persons having special sources of information," Naryshkin believes. "Going wrong are sorry experts and sorry journalists; there may be also other, far more selfish reasons," he added.
The head of the presidential administration acknowledged that a difference in approaches does happen to arise in the Kremlin and the Government House.
"Really, with regard to some definite matters, differing points of view can arise in the government stfaff and the presidential administration, but that cannot be referred to as antagonism," he said. "The availability of differing points of view is a normal and even positive phenomenon in any (kind of) work, including administrative one," Naryshkin pointed out.
