Freeland refused to make a deal with Moscow
Foreign Affairs Canada has rejected the Russian proposal on the abolition of the ban on entry to Russia in return for the lifting of sanctions.
The Minister of foreign Affairs of Canada Chrystia Freeland refused to make a deal with Russia for the lifting of the ban on entry to Russia, writes the canadian newspaper “The Globe and Mail”.
“The Minister of foreign Affairs Chrystia Freeland has resolutely rejected Russia’s proposal to lift the ban on visits to Russia in exchange for the lifting by Canada of the economic and visa sanctions imposed over the annexation by Moscow of the Ukrainian Peninsula of Crimea in 2014”, – stated in the material.
While Joe Pickerill, Director of public relations office Freeland, assured that Canada does not intend to apply the principle of quid pro quo (something for something) in this matter . “There will be no quid pro quo (quid Pro quo) for the aggression and illegal actions on their part, said Pickerel.
Earlier it became known that the Kremlin expressed willingness to remove personal sanctions against Freeland in exchange for the easing of restrictive measures by Canada.
We recall that for the strong support of Russia in March 2014, banned the entry into its territory of Christ Freeland, along with 12 other Canadians, among whom 8 members, three civil servants and the President of the Ukrainian canadian Congress.
