BRUSSELS, June 1. /TASS/. The Russian Federation and the European Union may hold a parliamentary conference on security in the second half of the year, a senior Russian senator said Wednesday after meetings in Brussels with deputies of various European Parliament factions.
"I think that in the second half of the year there is a chance to hold interparliamentary discussions or a conference dedicated to the return to the issue of a comprehensive treaty on security that would be based on non-aligned relations," Andrey Klimov, a deputy chairman of the international affairs committee of the Federation Council, the upper house of Russia’s parliament, told Russian journalists.
Klimov said the meeting is also expected to discuss possible joint legislative measures to fight illegal migration and the soonest possible ratification of the Paris Agreement on Climate Change.
