Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein has been invited to Russia later this year.
Stein said that after attending the UN Climate Change Conference 2015 in Paris, she is “planning to visit Moscow on a mission for international peace and diplomacy.”
Stein said, “I’ve already been invited to a dinner with Russian President Vladimir Putin, and to meet with members of Russia’s parliament, including the heads of two international affairs committees. I’m meeting with Russian leaders to gauge their reactions to a new foreign policy based on diplomacy, international law, and human rights. In particular, I want to discuss the potential for an agreement to eliminate nuclear weapons and use the vast resources thus saved to fight climate change.”
Stein lamented the “too many wasted opportunities for dialogue and cooperation with Russia (and many other countries) in recent years, due to the pointlessly confrontational bipartisan foreign policy known as the ‘Washington Consensus.’”
