The relations between Russia and Austria are experiencing hard times, but we need to maintain our trade and economic relations in any circumstances, Russia’s Economic Development Minister Alexey Ulyukayev said at a meeting with Vice-Chancellor and Federal Minister for Science, Research and Economy of Austria Reinhold Mitterlehner.
"Our trade and economic relations are going through hard times, but that is the way it is that good times never come and time is always difficult. We need to work to achieve success in any circumstances. Those who work on the market know that it is necessary to make money using rise and decline," the Russian minister said.
According to Ulyukayev, the history of relations between the two countries is not only the story of trade and investment but also science, technology, history of cultural exchanges.
"We do our best also to contribute to the treasury of our heritage," he said.
Ulyukayev touched upon a meeting of the intergovernmental commission of Russia and Austria, which was held earlier.
"This is a momentous event. The break between the last and the recent meetings was a bit longer. But, fortunately, the parties showed enough goodwill and found a solution to the problems," he said.
