Ambassador Andrei Kelin met with members of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Russia

On 3 March, Ambassador Andrei Kelin had a meeting with the members of the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Russia.

Members of both the House of Lords and the House of Commons representing all major political parties in the country participated in the meeting.

Views were exchanged on a broad range of topics, including Russia-UK relations, European security and pressing international issues, not least the situation in Syria.

Prospects for future re-establishment of Russia-UK interparliamentary contacts were also outlined. Ambassador Kelin reaffirmed Russia’s openness to equitable and respectful dialogue, including in the parliamentary dimension. The visit of House of Lords members to Moscow last December is further evidence of this.
