The US and Russia must maintain an open dialogue and understand each other, said US Senator Michael Lee. On Friday, he meets with Chairman of the Federation Council Committee on Foreign Affairs Konstantin Kosachev.

“Our systems of government are different, and often the decisions that are made are in direct conflict, but I think it’s important to maintain an open dialogue and understand each other, as this brings more benefits”, – Lee said.

At the talks in the Federation Council, US Ambassador John Huntsman and representatives of the American diplomatic mission are present. Anticipating the meeting, the American noted that his wife, unlike him, is not the first time visiting Russia – she studied at the University of Novosibirsk and visited Moscow. Today, she, along with wife of John Huntsman, visits the sights of the capital.
