There has been no suspension of adoptions of Russian children by Americans, according to the U.S. State Department. The statement comes after suspension reports circulated Thursday based on comments from a Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson.
He was reacting to the case of an American woman who sent her seven-year-old adopted son back to Russia on a plane by himself.
A delegation from the U.S. plans to meet with Russian officials next week to discuss a possible adoption treaty. Russia says this kind of treaty must be signed if adoptions to the U.S. are to continue.
