COPENHAGEN, March 27. /TASS/. Nordic Council made a decision at its two-day session that ended its work on Thursday that spring roundtable discussions with Russian lawmakers along with an introductory visit of the council’s parliamentarians to the north-western city of Vyborg should be postponed, the Nordic Council presidium said on the official website on Friday.
"Elections in Finland and busy timetables of our national parliaments are main reason for determining a new date for the roundtable scheduled for April in Moscow," President of the Nordic Council Hцskuldur Thуrhallsson said.
Last year the Council put off the roundtable discussions that were to take place in Stockholm in the spring because of developments in Ukraine, the statement said. The discussions did not take place but in October an enlarged meeting with Russian lawmakers was organised in the Swedish capital during the Nordic Council session.
The Copenhagen meeting considered the decision of the Russian authorities to designate the Nordic Council of Ministers’ Saint Petersburg office as a ‘foreign agent’, which was followed by suspension of its operation by the council’s member-states.
The Nordic Council established in 1952 is the official inter-parliamentary body of Denmark, Iceland, Norway, Finland and Sweden alongside the Faroe Islands, Greenland and Aland.
