The Russian foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov discussed by telephone with the Secretary General of the Council of Europe Thorbjorn Jagland and Russia’s participation in the activities of the COE, said the Russian foreign Ministry.

«The sides discussed issues of participation of the Russian Federation in the activities of the Council of Europe», — said the Minister.

In late June, Lavrov informed Jagland about the decision of the Russian side — one of the major contributors to suspend the payment of the contribution to the budget of the Council of Europe for 2017 to restore the full powers of the national delegation to PACE.
