Austrian Foreign Minister says to accompany Federal President during his visit to Russia
Austrian Foreign Minister Karin Kneissl said on Sunday that she would be accompanying Austrian Federal President Alexander Van der Bellen during his visit to Moscow in the near future, Urdu Point reported.
In late March, Bulat Khaydarov, the press attache at the Russian Embassy in Vienna, told Sputnik that the visit of the Austrian head of state was being prepared but no exact dates had been fixed.
The diplomat, however, noted that the visit would most likely take place in the next few months.
"No, I will be accompanying the federal president," Karin Kneissl told the ORF2 broadcaster when a journalist suggested that she would not travel to the Russian capital with Van der Bellen.
Kneissl paid a two-day working visit to Russia in mid-March.
