Earlier, the State Duma department for public relations and interaction with mass media told Itar-Tass that Naryshkin would make a working visit to France on September 1-2 to meet with PACE President Anne Brasseur.
Naryshkin will be able to take part in the PACE Presidential Committee session despite the fact that he is included in the EU sanction list.
In April, following Crimea’s accession to Russia, the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe passed a resolution that silenced the Russian delegation and expelled its representatives from PACE governing bodies until the end of 2014.
