Russia not in talks with OSCE on observers in upcoming elections: Foreign Ministry

Moscow, Aug 22 (UNI/Sputnik) Russia has not been engaged in any consultations with the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) on the participation of its observers in Russian elections coming September, but is open to re-negotiations, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Alexander Grushko said Sunday.
"No, as of today, no consultations are under way. The ODIHR [OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights] decided not to send its representatives to Russia, if the office realizes it made a wrong decision, then they are welcome," Grushko said in an interview with the Kommersant newspaper.
Russia will not further attempt to persuade the agency to send its observers to the September elections as it has fulfilled all its obligations within the OSCE and other international organizations, according to the diplomat.
