ST. PETERSBURG, June 29 (Itar-Tass) —— Federation Council Chairperson Valentina Matviyenko and U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton confirmed the importance of easier visa formalities between Russia and the United States at a bilateral meeting held in St. Petersburg on Friday on the sidelines of the Women and Economy Forum, which was dedicated to the Russian presidency in the APEC.

“We discussed visa issues, and our opinions coincided fully,” Matviyenko told reporters after the meeting.

She said that a bill facilitating visa formalities had been submitted to the Russian parliament for ratification. “That is a major breakthrough in the bilateral relations, but we think we should do more and shift to the visa-free travels for tourists,” she said.

Clinton “had a very positive response to the idea,” Matviyenko said. “She thinks we should do that.”
