LONDON, April 10 (Itar-Tass) - Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said he is hoping to visit the special prison at Guantanamo shortly in order to find out the condition of its inmate Mingazov, a Russian citizen.
Lavrov made the statement after talks with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Wednesday, April 10.
“We are preparing the visit. I hope it will take place shortly and we will be able to see the condition of our citizen Mingazov,” the minister said.
Ravil Mingazov was transferred to Guntanamo in 2002, following his arrest by U.S. security services in the house of a Pakistani man who had connections with Al Qaeda. The United States suspected him of having been trained in terrorist camps in Afghanistan. Mingazov denied that.
