Swiss Foreign Ministry: head of department Cassis will not be able to fly to China, he will return home
The plane with Swiss Foreign Minister Ignazio Cassis, flying on the Novosibirsk-Hangzhou route, will not be able to leave Russia and fly to China, as originally planned. This is stated on the Twitter account of the country's foreign ministry.
The head of the department will return to Switzerland. The plane with the delegation had previously landed at the Moscow Domodedovo airport due to technical problems. The lives of the people on board were not endangered.
The fact that the ship was redirected to Moscow was previously reported by the Swiss government. Before that, he returned to the airport of departure Tolmachevo. “[Moscow] is checking whether further travel to China is possible,” the Swiss government said in a statement.
