.”Russian diplomats decided not to accompany us during the inspection of Embassy of the Russian Federation in new York. The reason I don’t know. Our inspections as if they were not named, were perfectly legal,… and inspection of the Russian diplomatic facilities was conducted by the security service of the state Department, the FBI was not”, – she said.
“There are many areas where, we hope, Russia and the United States could cooperate”, – concluded Nauert.
