MOSCOW, January 26. /TASS/. Russia does not want to accept back migrants reaching Norway from its territory who provide false information about the purpose of their sojourn in Russia, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Tuesday.
"The thing is that these are people who come to Russia either to work in Russia or to visit their relatives and who never declare transit to Norway as the purpose of their sojourn in Russia," Lavrov said at a news conference dedicated to the results of the year 2015. "It means that these people declared deliberately wrong information about the purpose of their visits to Russia. That is why we don’t want to receive such people back. They violate our laws and we have agreed with Norway’s relevant authorities to take a pause to work out an algorithm of settling this problem in the interests of both Russia and Norway."
The minister reminded that Russia and Norway had an agreement on re-admission. "Our Federal Migration Service is now negotiating with the Norwegian partners a possibility to swiftly amend this agreement to offer practical solutions to the problem of such dishonest travelers," he said.
