The state Duma hopes for the full restoration of inter-parliamentary cooperation with the United States and on cooperation in the sphere of global security, said the Chairman of the state Duma Committee on international Affairs Leonid Slutsky.

On Thursday, Russian President Vladimir Putin during a press conference said that Russia and the U.S. should not attack each other «like animals», he said, we must learn to draw conclusions and move forward. The Russian President stressed that Russia and the United States many themes on which Moscow and Washington could unite and work together.

«We always hope that we will be able to find a common denominator and fully interact primarily on issues such as global security. This, of course, the sphere of combating international terrorism and the proliferation of drug trafficking. We also hope for the full restoration of inter-parliamentary cooperation. Is the format, which could help to «broaden» a node in the current Russian-American relations,» — said Slutsky RIA Novosti.

The MP stressed that the normalization of relations with the United States, bringing them to the shelf, including in the plane of parliamentary diplomacy is one of the priorities.

«Today, however, the level of bilateral relations, Russia and the United States are much lower than during the cold war. Two leading nuclear powers have no right to be in the mode of confrontation. But on the American side, in particular, in the U.S. Congress, we are constantly faced with Russophobic manifestations that are beyond any logic,» said Slutsky.
