MOSCOW, April 19. /TASS/. Russia and France are not contented with the current volume of trade turnover, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said Tuesday after talks with his French counterpart Jean-Marc Ayrault.
Lavrov said ways to overcome trade decrease tendencies will be considered at a regular meeting of the Russian-French intergovernmental commission.
"We hope that, as our prime ministers agreed, a regular meeting of the intergovernmental commission co-chaired by the heads of government will be held by the yearend," Lavrov said.
"During that meeting, ways to overcome tendencies of decreasing trade turnover, which, certainly, can suit neither Russia nor France, will be considered," he said.
