Zakharov commented on the rumors about the possible closure of the Russian Consulate in USA



Official representative of Russian foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova said that closing in the United States one of the Russian consulates no reason. She stated this on air of the program “Sunday evening” on TV channel “Russia 1”, reports TASS.

“Now if you will tell what for many years was broken parity and now is the time to raze it to stop the hostile actions of the Russian Federation — it’s a total bluff, it is designed for those who do not know the essence of the issue,” she said.

The diplomat explained that many years ago Americans were asked to open a fourth Consulate General in the territory of Russia, but they did not. “All questions to them. Therefore, speculation on this theme also will not work”, — said Zakharov.
