Australia took away from Russia the land leased to it for the construction of the embassy


The building of the Russian Embassy in Australia. Archival photoMOSCOW, 17 Aug. Australian authorities have decided to stop leasing the land on which Russia was going to build a new embassy, ​​follows from a statement published on the website of the National Capital Authority (NCA), which deals with land planning and management. We are talking about a site that Russia Bought in Canberra. In December 2008, the NCA issued a permit for the lease, and in 2011 – for work and construction. According to the lease agreement, Russia undertook to build the building within three years, but the project was never completed. “Pandora's box,” said Shoigu, “After regular consultations and discussions with Russian representatives over the years, and in the absence of commitments on completion dates, the NCA has decided to terminate the lease,” NCA said. Head of Department Sally Barnes added that the work in progress violate the overall aesthetics, importance and dignity of the territory reserved for diplomatic missions. Now Russia has 20 days to clear the site. Then he will return to the list of lands available for diplomatic purposes. This decision does not apply to the old embassy building. It is noted that in the future Russia may submit a new application.
