MOSCOW, February 27. /TASS/. Russian and French senators have set up a Strategic Parliamentary Dialogue in order to maintain contacts and exchange views on the pressing issues concerning bilateral and multilateral cooperation, a memorandum on parliamentary cooperation says.
"The parties will hold consultations on the entire range of issues within their competence," the document, signed by chairs of the Russian and French Senate committees for international affairs Konstantin Kosachev and Jean-Pierre Raffarin, reads. "In order to reach this goal, a Strategic Parliamentary Dialogue is set up." The memorandum also says that "Russia and France will take turns in hosting the sessions of the Strategic Parliamentary Dialogue due to be held at least once a year."
According to Russian Federation Council (upper house of parliament) Deputy Speaker Ilyas Umakhanov, "the role of parliaments in improving global security will grow."
"I expect that the memorandum on parliamentary cooperation will prove to be a solid basis for further cooperation between the Federation Council Committee for International Affairs and the French Senate Committee for Foreign Affairs, Defense and Armed forces," Umakhanov added.
