Government of the Russian Federation delegation and International Council of Russian Compatriots, including Minister of the Moscow City Government Sergey Cheremin and members of Department for Foreign Economic and International Affairs participated in the round table, Ksors reports.

It was mentioned that 5 million Russian compatriots live in US, and the fifth part of them in New York. Due to this, development of business, political, social and cultural contacts with Russia, as well as enhancing the image of Russia in US are key factors affecting relations between our countries.
