MOSCOW, March 2. /TASS/. Chairman of the Russian State Duma Committee for Foreign Affairs Leonid Slutsky has welcomed the British parliament’s willingness to restore dialogue with Moscow.
When commenting on the recent report by the British House of Commons Foreign Affairs Committee, Slutsky said that "it seems, Brexit has hugely influenced the British politicians’ sentiment. We welcome the position of our counterparts in the House of Commons and are ready to speed up dialogue. We need to make up for lost years," the senior Russian lawmaker told reporters.
Slutsky also said that he considered it to be "completely normal that Brexit has inevitably led the British political circles to realize the need to review relations with Moscow." "Perhaps new meaningful and positive relations with London could be built on the parliamentary level," he concluded.
On Thursday, the British House of Commons Foreign Affairs Committee issued a report dubbed "The United Kingdom’s relations with Russia," emphasizing the need to widen bilateral relations.
