GORKI, June 2. /TASS/. Russia and Slovakia should make an effort to enhance economic cooperation, as in the past three months the turnover between the two countries fell by 40%, the Prime Minister of Slovakia Robert Fico said Tuesday after talks with the Russian PM Dmitry Medvedev.
"The purpose of our meeting is the need to overcome the negative factors in our trade and economic relations. The decline in turnover of 40% in the last three months shouldn't happen. The figure is terrible," Fico said.
At a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Fico said Slovakia sees no reasons for any decrease in trade with Russia.
"We see absolutely no grounds and reasons to bring down our trade," he said, adding that decisions taken at the 17th meeting of the bilateral intergovernmental commission and those taken earlier on Tuesday after his talks with Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev might give a fresh impetus to the development of economic ties between the two countries. Thus, he said, at a meeting with Russian Railways (RZD) CEO Vladimir Yakunin they had discussed the issue of broad gauge, which had been enjoying support of the Slovak government.
