CAIRO, March 5. /TASS/. Russian and Egyptian lawmakers have agreed to cooperate within international organizations, Konstantin Kosachev, chairman of the international committee of Russia’s Federation Council upper parliament house, said on Sunday, commenting on the results of the Federation Council delegation’s visit to Egypt.
According to Kosachev, Egyptian lawmakers want to develop cooperation with Russia both in the bilateral format and within inter-parliamentary organizations. "It was important for us to see if the Egyptian side is committed to cooperation. And we definitely saw it," he said. "We agreed to coordinate our positions within inter-parliamentary assemblies."
Thus, in his words, Russia and Egypt are looking at a possibility of initiating joint draft resolutions at the Inter-Parliamentary Union which is to hold its next sessions in Dacca in April and in St. Petersburg in October.
Another major agreement reached during the Russian delegation’s visit to Egypt was on the establishment of a Federation Council cooperation group like the one already set up at the Egyptian House of Deputies. "Time is ripe for it. As soon as our group is formed, joint work will start in full volume," Kosachev said, adding that Russian co-chair of the group will be his first deputy, Vladimir Dzhabarov.
