Visit of French delegation led by Chairman Natssobraniya Francois de Rugy in Moscow has been postponed until autumn because of the political situation in France, told reporters the head of the state Duma Committee on international Affairs Leonid Slutsky.

Previously, Slutsky said that de Rugy plans to speak at a meeting of the state Duma on July 25. Chairman of the state Duma Vyacheslav Volodin said Monday that the visit of the French delegation can be moved in the fall at the request of Paris.

«The visit of the delegation of the French National Assembly headed by its speaker, françois de Rugy rescheduled for the fall. A message was received just a few hours ago directly from the French side. This is not related to the issues of our bilateral relations and Interparliamentary ties. Here are the reasons solely in the domestic political situation in France,» — said Slutsky.
