MOSCOW, April 6 /TASS/. Sergey Naryshkin, the speaker of the Russian State Duma (lower house of parliament) on Monday commented on forthcoming contacts with foreign deputies and said US attempts to restrict Russia’s parliamentary contacts look ridiculous.
"Attempts by US politicians responsible for foreign policy and their accomplices to restrict the Russian parliament’s contacts look simply strange and ridiculous," Naryshkin said.
"We will continue maintaining contacts and holding consultations with deputies from various countries, including the EU states," the politician said adding that a Turkish parliamentary delegation would be received at the Russian State Duma next week.
This week, Russian deputies will meet the Greek prime minister and the foreign minister of Armenia, Narsyhkin went on to say.
"A parliamentary delegation led by the Duma speaker will visit Cuba, South Korea and Japan in May. The broad international agenda speaks for itself: the State Duma is one of the centers of international contacts," Naryshkin stressed.
