MOSCOW, August 5 (Itar-Tass) - Experts believe that it is necessary to inspect America’s Guantanamo Base necessary.
Experts commented on mass media reports when Russia and the United States failed to agree on the visit to the Guantanamo prison by Russian representatives. “Systematic inspections are indispensable to check the facts of torture allegations,” director-general of the Institute of Foreign Political Studies and Initiatives Veronika Krasheninnikova said, adding that “regular hunger strikes prove the facts of inhuman treatment.”
Earlier mass media reported that Russia and the U.S. failed to reach agreement on the visit to the Guantanamo prison by Russian representatives, who intended to meet Russian prisoner Ravil Mingazov.
U.S. State Department spokesperson Victoria Nuland said the prisoner would refuse to meet Russian representatives. Thus, the prison’s administration cannot insist on the meeting, which should be organized on a voluntary basis. However, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said in April Russian officials sought to visit Guantanamo. “Moscow would like to make sure that Mingazov is in good condition,” Lavrov said.
