Russian ambassador in Denver to increase understanding between the U.S. and Russia
At a private event in Denver on Tuesday, Sergey Kislyak, Russia’s ambassador to the United States, expressed his hopes that tensions that have existed between the U.S. and Russia since the Cold War might one day be ended in earnest. U.S.-Russian relations are at a low-point currently, the
ambassador said to the group, but he hoped that by promoting greater communication and understanding by both sides that healthy relations might be restored.
The ambassador advocates for developing relations between the two countries in areas outside of Washington D.C. and Moscow, saying these relationships will be the main driver in creating stronger bonds between the two countries.
In comments made to Governor John Hickenlooper and Denver Mayor Michael Hancock earlier in the day, Ambassador Kislyak emphasized that the Russian government is still very interested in developing business partnerships, despite the poor state of relations between Washington and Moscow.
Ambassador Kislyak has led a distinguished career as a diplomat and has served as an employee of the Foreign Ministry of the Russian Federation since 1977. He has served as Ambassador to the U.S. since 2008 and is also Permanent Observer of the Russian Federation to the Organization of American States.
