BERLIN, March 21 (Itar-Tass) — Russia’s aggregate trade turnover with Germany and Poland reached 100 billion U.S. dollars in 2011, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.
After the tripartite meeting with German and Polish counterparts, Guido Westerwelle and Radoslaw Sikorski, on Wednesday, Lavrov said, “Economic cooperation between our countries develops dynamically. Aggregate trade turnover reached 100 billion U.S. dollars in 2011. It grew quicker than trade with the European Union as a whole.”
“Germany ranks second among our foreign trade partners. In January Poland has become third for trade turnover among EU countries,” Lavrov added.
The Russian minister noted interaction between three countries in international and regional organisations. Russia maintained and an active dialogue with the EU and NATO, he said. Priority attention will be riveted to building a new Euro-Atlantic security architecture, disarmament and a strategic balance, including missile defence and the new framework of the CFE Treaty, Lavrov stressed.
“Three countries’ contribution to carrying out the Russia-EU Partnership for Modernisation has a big significance,” the Russian minister said.
