15.12.2017 - Embassy press secretary comment on Chris Bryant’s “open letter to Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson”

Q: Do you have any comments on the “open letter to Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson” by Chris Bryant MP in The Times, alleging that the Russian hosts would “discombobulate” him on his forthcoming visit to Moscow? A: We deplore the attitudes shown by Mr Bryant – especially taking into account his current position as the chairman of the all-party parliamentary group on Russia, which is meant to contribute to dialogue between Britain and Russia, not undermine it. These are definitely not the best parting words for the Foreign Secretary heading to Russia soon. We expect a more constructive approach from the British side on this important visit, and, as the recent visit of Sir Alan Duncan to Moscow proved, a responsible dialogue is possible.
