SINGAPORE, March 17. /TASS/. Russia and Singapore are demonstrating "genuine bilateral interest in developing cooperation between the two countries," Federation Council Speaker Valentina Matviyenko told reporters on Thursday after her visit to Singapore.
"Talks were held with the political leadership of the country. They were comprehensive and concrete," Matviyenko said adding that the sides "discussed the whole agenda on Russian-Singaporean relations."
Moreover, they discussed "what should be done to boost dynamics of bilateral cooperation, which directions to be made priority, what legal base should be developed, which concrete inter-governmental agreements are necessary" to create conditions for developing business and cooperation in different spheres, she went on.
Matviyenko added that "it was a brainstorm ahead of the visit of Singaporean Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong to Russia in May." The speaker expressed confidence that "all issues - problematic and successful - will be discussed during the Singaporean prime minister’s visit to Russia." "This will give a new impetus and dynamics to improving the quality and level of our cooperation," she concluded.
