“I asked to reschedule the debate and await the assignment of the date,” Aldo Carcaci of the opposition Parti Populaire (Popular Party) told RIA Novosti.

 

Carcaci introduced the draft resolution, calling on the Belgian government to bring up the issue of lifting anti-Russia sanctions with the European Union leadership, in the summer and initial discussions were planned for October.

 

“I did the right thing, because the election of Mr. [Donald] Trump as US president could in no small part change the situation in the future,” the Belgian lawmaker stressed.
