MOSCOW, June 1 /TASS/. Russia and Mexico should focus on development of economic ties, Mexican Deputy Foreign Minister Carlos de Icaza said in his speech delivered to the students of the Russian Foreign Ministry Diplomatic Academy on Wednesday.

"Russia and Mexico have good political contacts. A dialogue is under way at high and summit levels. Solid cultural ties have been established," Carlos de Icaza said.

"Now, it is necessary to establish economic cooperation. I think that the emphasis should be placed on trade ties," the Mexican diplomat told the academy’s students.

The diplomat said that many people mistakenly believed that the United States was Mexico’s only trading partner. Mexico has established solid trade ties with the European Union countries and Asia and develops active contacts with the Middle East and African states, he added.

"Our trade turnover with Russia amounts to about 2 billion US dollars," Carlos de Icaza went on to say. "I think that our two counties are lacking knowledge of each other. It is necessary to search for ways of building contacts in order to know in what areas we can trade," the deputy foreign minister said.

Carlos de Icaza is paying a working visit to Moscow on June 1-2. He is expected to meet Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov and President of the Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs Alexander Shokhin.
