MOSCOW, June 6. /TASS/. Moscow and Helsinki expect the turnover downward trend will be stopped, Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Monday after talks with his Finnish counterpart Timo Soini.

"We held very good negotiations with my Finnish counterpart Timo Soini," Lavrov said. "Talks made possible to discuss a wide range of issues pertaining to our bilateral talks and international agenda," he said.

"Russia is an important trade partner for Russia despite the recent decline in the trade turnover. We are undertaking measures in order to initiate its growth again," Timo Soini said in his turn.

"We expect the trade turnover contraction trend will be stopped," Lavrov said. "We hope the full-scale intergovernmental commission meeting scheduled in fall will make possible to take specific decisions helping to overcome the situation," the Minister added.

Proactive implementation of major investment projects encourages optimism, the Russian Foreign Minister said. "I’d like to particularly note construction of a nuclear power plant in Finland with Rosatom’s participation," Lavrov said.

"Finland’s Fortum energy company is implementing an energy system development project in the West Siberia," he added.
