MOSCOW, May 25. /TASS/. Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov has confirmed that on Thursday he will address the State Duma (lower house of parliament) to nominate Deputy Foreign Minister Vasily Nebenzya to the position of Russia’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations.

"Yes, I will do that," he told TASS.

When asked if Nebenzya would be appointed by summer, Gatilov said that first, the State Duma and the Federation Council (upper house of parliament) needed to approve the candidate, then the president would issue a decree on the appointment. "This is not a one-day process," Gatilov noted.

In response to a question if the new permanent representative could enter office in summer, the deputy foreign minister said that it was possible. "Let us hope that the process completes as soon as possible," he added.
