MOSCOW, June 8. /TASS/. National Security Adviser (NSA) to the UK prime minister Stephen Lovegrove is in Moscow on a one-day working visit for talks with Russian colleagues, the British Embassy in Moscow told TASS on Tuesday.

“Sir Stephen Lovegrove, the UK’s national security adviser, is today in Moscow to meet with his Russian colleagues and discuss issues of mutual interest. It’s very important to keep the channels of communication between the two countries open,” a spokesperson said.
