    WASHINGTON, February 3, 2004. (RIA Novosti correspondent Vasily Voropayev) -- This year a meeting of young American and Russian leaders is due in the United States and Russia, said Mikhail Margelov, head of the international committee of the Federation Council.

    He said that on Tuesday he met with former American Defence Secretary William Cohen. For three years in a row he has been holding in Florida international meetings of future leaders of the third millennium.

    "We have agreed that two such get-togethers will be held this year, one in Florida and the other in a city in Russia's north-west," Mikhail Margelov said.

    "The composition of the American and Russian delegations at the meeting is going to be very interesting. Representatives, Republican senators, Democrats, big businessmen, representatives of non-governmental organisations are willing to participate," he said.

    Mikhail Margelov also said that the list of participants is being finalised. "Today we have agreed upon a timeframe for events and the text of the invitation, which William Cohen and I have undersigned. Now we begin to send invitations to potential American and Russian participants," said the Russian senator.
