MOSCOW, March 22 (Itar-Tass) – Moscow will watch the fate of Russian children adopted by Americans after the agreement with the U.S. expires in 2014, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.
Speaking at the State Duma on Friday, Lavrov said, “Despite the fact that the Russian-U.S. agreement on cooperation in respect of inter-country adoption expires, we will continue monitoring the fate of Russian children in compliance with the 1964 consular convention. We will continue insisting the U.S. State Department give information on accommodation facilities of Russian children adopted by American citizens before the above-mentioned agreement comes into effect.”
“This issue and other problems have been raised during my recent contacts with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry. He told me he would take measures to ensure transparency in this field and make interaction with Russia more constructive,” the Russian foreign minister said.
