Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov told TASS on Saturday he would discuss visa issues and the efforts of normalizing the work of both countries’ diplomatic missions with US Ambassador John Sullivan who had returned to Moscow.
"Next week, I will hold a meeting with Ambassador Sullivan. We will discuss current issues with the ambassador depending on their evolution. Of course, the main issues include normalizing the work of Russian missions in the United States and US missions in Russia. These issues are at the foreground. And, naturally, this relates to visa issues. We cannot turn a blind eye to the fact that mutual trips of our citizens have been suspended," the high-ranking Russian diplomat said.
The Russian side will pay close attention to the signals that US Ambassador John Sullivan who has returned to Moscow will convey from Washington, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister said.
