Matvienko: Demand for dialogue with Russia at P20 parliamentary summit was very high


“The request for a dialogue with Russia was very high, everything they could do was worked out. On the sidelines of the parliamentary G20, there were contacts with many speakers, and they understand everything correctly, but many said that they lacked objective, real information about what is happening in Ukraine,” Matviyenko told reporters, commenting on the results of the summit.

According to her, a draft declaration was prepared, which satisfied the Russian delegation, but did not satisfy the representatives of Great Britain and Australia. “As a result, they simply limited themselves to a statement by the chairman of the parliamentary G20, the speaker of the Indonesian parliament. We consider this a good result,” the senator stressed.

The eighth summit of G20 parliamentarians was held in Jakarta on October 5-7, organized by the House of Representatives of the Republic of Indonesia and the Inter-Parliamentary Union. The priority themes of the summit were accelerated sustainable development and a green economy, food and energy security and economic challenges, an effective parliament and viable democracy, social inclusion, gender equality and women’s empowerment.
