Russian TV host invites McCain on popular talk show
MOSCOW (AFP) - A Russian state television presenter said Sunday he had invited US Senator John McCain to appear on his chat show to discuss his views on Syria.
Vladimir Solovyov, known for his pro-Kremlin stance, said he had invited the Republican senator, who opposes Russia's strategy on Syria, to appear on his live talk show, "Sunday Night".
"On behalf of VTRK (broadcaster) and myself, I invite Senator John McCain to appear live on Sunday Night," Mr Solovyov wrote on Twitter. "I decided to give Senator McCain the opportunity to say all he thinks about relations between Russia and the US and the chances of avoiding war in Syria," Mr Solovyov told Rossiya 24 television.
He also said that the channel guaranteed that Mr McCain "would have the chance to talk directly live to Russians".
