MOSCOW, July 28. /TASS/. Moscow and Paris have similar aims in the fight against terrorism, French National Assembly member and ex-Transport Minister Thierry Mariani said on Thursday.
"I have to say that we have we same goals in the fight against terrorism, the same enemies," Mariani, who also serves as co-chair of "French-Russian Dialogue" association, said at the meeting with Russian State Duma Speaker Sergey Naryshkin.
He thanked Naryshkin for condolences to French people over the recent terrorist attack in Nice.
"Russian tourists were injured there. I also want to say that this terrorist attack was carried out by the same people who downed the aircraft with Russian tourists en route from Egypt," he noted.
The French delegation of 11 lawmakers and senators led by Mariani are scheduled to visit Crimea from July 29 to 31 to take part in celebrating Russian Navy Day in Sevastopol. Meetings with the Head of the Republic of Crimea, Sergey Aksyonov, the State Council Chairman, Vladimir Konstantinov, and possibly with Crimea’s Prosecutor General, Natalya Poklonskaya are on the agenda.
