MOSCOW, February 17. /TASS/. The decision on who will represent the United States at the celebrations in Moscow on the occasion of the Victory Day on May 9 has not been made so far, US Ambassador to Russia John Tefft said on Tuesday.
Tefft told a TASS correspondent that there are yet "no such plans" in comments to a suggestion that US Secretary of State John Kerry or any other representatives of the US leadership could come to Moscow.
The diplomat reminded that US President Barack Obama is not planning to attend the major celebrations in the Russian capital to mark the 70th anniversary of victory over Nazi Germany in World War II.
Moscow has invited many global politicians - including the leaders of North Korea and China - to the celebrations featuring a traditional Red Square military parade. Chinese President Xi Jinping and around 20 foreign leaders confirmed their decision to attend World War Two Victory Day celebrations in the Russian capital. North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has also given a positive response to Moscow’s invitation. Kim’s trip to Moscow will be his first foreign visit since taking power from his late father, Kim Jong Il, as the country's leader in 2011.
