MOSCOW, May 26. /TASS/. Russia and member countries of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) have approved concrete projects in oil & gas, energy and high-tech spheres, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Thursday after the session in the framework of strategic dialogue between Russia and GCC.
"We have approved at the level of ministers today the final communique on our meeting which, together with outlining common approaches to international and regional problems, establishes directions of development of our trade and economic, investment, humanitarian ties and other ties between GCC countries," Lavrov said.
"We are talking about promoting concrete projects between Russia and our Arab friends in the oil & gas sphere, in the sphere of energy, including nuclear energy, in the sphere of informational and telecommunications technologies and peaceful exploration of space, medicine, transport infrastructure and other spheres," the foreign minister added.
"We tasked our experts to prepare a plan of actions for Russia and GCC in the aforementioned spheres so that we, ministers, can consider it and approve sometime in September when we plan to hold another meeting on the sidelines of UN General Assembly," Lavrov said.
"I consider the meeting in the framework of our strategic dialogue as very useful," he noted. "I am confident that further cooperation between Russia and GCC will be even more effective, taking into account the results achieved today," he concluded.
