Rand Paul Secures DC Meeting With Russian Delegation

Rand Paul Secures DC Meeting With Russian Delegation

In 2014, after Russian Federation annexed Crimea, he wrote that the United States must isolate Moscow "if it insists on acting like a rogue nation".

Trump's Helsinki meeting was panned by a number of prominent Republican officials who said the president appeared to side with Putin over top us intelligence officials.

It's unclear when those Russian lawmakers plan to visit the U.S. Capitol. "We will continue our conversation with our American counterparts tomorrow on these and other most likely regional issues of the worldwide agenda", Slutsky said, according to Russian state media.

Paul also met representatives of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the State Duma, the lower house of the Russian parliament, led by the committee's chairman Leonid Slutsky.

The information could not be immediately confirmed by USA officials. "[Monday], I met with Chairman Kosachev, and we agreed on the importance of continued dialogue".

"Engagement is vital to our national security and peace around the world", Paul said.

Sen. Rand Paul said during a trip to Russia that American and Russian legislators need closer contact, noting that "our biggest problem right now is no dialogue". "Meanwhile, my Trump-defending opponent Don Huffines made a decision to go on a Moscow adventure this week with Rand Paul instead, to "improve parliamentary relations" with Russian Federation".

The senator and other members of Congress are now in Moscow meeting with government officials.

Visiting Moscow on Monday, Sen. Richard Shelby of Alabama that traveled to Moscow around July 4.

Kosachev said the visit is especially valuable as some USA representatives are attempting to treat all contacts with Russian politicians as toxic ones.

Paul, known for some of his unorthodox positions in the Senate, has recently emerged as a champion of Trump's outreach to Russian Federation. Republicans spoke to their foreign counterparts in July, ahead of the Helsinki summit, to discuss several issues including Russian meddling in USA elections.

In the days after the summit, Paul called the criticism partisan and overblown, saying it was too risky not to seek dialogue when relations were so tense.

Trump has repeatedly said he wants to improve relations with Russian Federation, which are severely strained.

Paul argued that "those who believe in either country that we should not have diplomacy are greatly mistaken". "It does not mean we don't have differences".
