MOSCOW, June 13. /TASS/. Moscow highlights the fruitful cooperation with Seoul in security on the Korean Peninsula, Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said at the opening of negotiations with South Korea’s Foreign Minister Yun Byung-se on Monday.
"We consider South Korea a key partner in the Asia-Pacific region," Lavrov said. "Despite the complicated international situation, we have managed to maintain the dynamics of the dialogue and to continue the fruitful cooperation in providing security on the Korean Peninsula."
The minister spoke about the meeting of the countries’ presidents in November 2015 in Paris, where they discussed all spheres of relations.
"Today we have a good opportunity to see how those agreements, achieved at the top level, are being implemented," he said. "We confirm the intention for development of the bilateral relations on the basis of friendship and good neighborhood."
Moscow is interested in bringing the bilateral relations to a qualitatively new level, Lavrov said.
