Iliyas Umakhanov stressed that the Turkish Embassy was actively cooperating with the Federal Assembly. “We are satisfied with the intensity and contents of our interparliamentary contacts, which provide an opportunity for us to coordinate our joint approaches at international parliamentary venues and engage in a quite intense bilateral dialogue.”
