Kremlin comments on U.S. senators letter over Interpol head election
Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov commented on the call by a group of American senators to prevent the election of a Russian candidate Alexander Prokopchuk as the head of Interpol.
"This is probably a certain kind of interference in the electoral process of an international organization," Reuters cited him as saying.
"What else can we call it?" the spokesman said. "Nevertheless, the elections will take place, let’s wait for the results," Peskov added.
A bipartisan group of U.S. Senators have published an open letter to President Trump's administration, urging it to exercise its 'influence' to ensure that Prokopchuk, does not become Interpol's next chief.
Interpol is due to elect a new head on November 21.
