Russian Ambassador to the Netherlands A. Shulgin met with President of the First Chamber of the States General of the Netherlands J. Bruijn

 

On December 6, Russian Ambassador to the Netherlands Alexander Shulgin held a meeting with President of the First Chamber of the States General of the Netherlands Jan Bruijn.

The two sides discussed a wide range of issues related to Russian-Dutch relations, including parliamentary cooperation.

It was emphasized that the importance of parliamentary diplomacy in modern terms is steadily increasing. This particularly was confirmed during the first in the history of Russian-Dutch relations visit of the Upper Chamber’s delegation to Russia in September 2018.

The Russian party consistently pursues the policy of building on inter-parliamentary cooperation and invites Dutch elected representatives to the various parliamentary forums held in Russia. We are ready to consider any counter-initiatives of our Dutch counterparts.
