MADRID, December 6 (Itar-Tass) — Russia’s Deputy Prime Minister Alexander Zhukov and Spain’s Acting Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero had a meeting here Monday in the format of the official functions that culminated the Year of Russia in Spain and the simultaneous Year of Spain in Russia.
The two men gave special focus at the talks to the ongoing financial crisis in Europe and the ways out of it.
Zhukov and Zapatero summed up the results of the past twelve months, pointing out the powerful impulse that has been given to a further progress of bilateral relations.
More than 350 events in the political, economic and cultural spheres have been held. One of the last such events was Monday’s business forum that drew enough attention from both countries’ business communities.
The reciprocal Year of Russian and Spanish cultures and social events was crowned with Monday night's gala concert of the stars of Russian ballet in the Royal Opera House in Madrid. The list of dignitaries who attended it included King Juan Carlos, Queen Sofia, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev’s spouse Svetlana, and Alexander Zhukov.
