MOSCOW, February 18 (Itar-Tass) — The Organisation of Economic Cooperation and Development gave a high assessment to Russia’s efforts aimed at countering corruption, the Foreign Ministry reported on Saturday.
The ministry commented on the results of the meeting between First Deputy Foreign Minister Andrei Denisov and OECD Secretary General Angel Gurria in Paris on February 17.
Denisov gave the OECD secretary-general a document on Russia’s joining of the Convention on Combating Bribery of Foreign Public Officials in International Business Transactions.
“Russia’s joining of the Convention proves the completion of an important stage on the way towards full-fledged membership. It preceded the three-year efforts by the OECD anti-corruption group to study the Russian regulatory framework in this field and make certain amendments to legislation,” the ministry said.
“In Paris the Russian delegation met with the OECD leadership and permanent representatives of member-countries of the OECD. The meetings focused on prospects for further expansion of cooperation in all fields. Angel Gurria gave a high assessment to our country’s efforts aimed at countering corruption and confirmed his interest in the soonest completion of the talks on Russia’s accession to the OECD,” the ministry said.
