PARIS, March 27. /ITAR-TASS/. France's top diplomat says Paris would like to discuss a postponement of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s visit scheduled for April.
“We intend to discuss with Russia if it believes this is really the best time for the visit,” Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius told French television on Thursday.
The invitation for the memorial events devoted to the 70th anniversary of the landing of allied troops in Normandy remains in force. “In any case he (Vladimir Putin) will arrive in France in June,” he said.
Last week French President Francois Hollande said the events would be devoted to commemorating thousands and millions who perished in World War II.
“We are still to come to accord regarding the Ukrainian crisis. Certain meetings will be cancelled, particularly, the Russia-EU summit,” he said at the EU summit in Brussels.
“But we are obliged to do our best for the spirit of peace to prevail on that ceremony,” Hollande said.
