The development of events demands the head of state should stay in the country. “Probably, there will be some changes in the agenda. But a decision will be made shortly,” he said.
The political discussion at the Assembly will begin on September 24. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov is scheduled to speak on September 27.
