According to Tass Agency on January 15, Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Maria Zakharova told reporters at a press conference on Friday that she hoped that the United States would keep its promise and close the prison at the United States Naval Base at Guantánamo Bay.
“We expressed our hope that the new U.S. government would honor its commitment to close Guantánamo without delay and provide its prisoners with fair, independent and impartial access to justice,” she said.
According to Al Jazeera, before winning the U.S. presidential election, the Biden campaign issued a statement saying, “Biden still supports the closure of Guantánamo Bay.
Guantánamo’s recruitment of terrorists and the destruction of the national security of the United States is also contrary to our national values.”
