ULAN BATOR, July 15. /TASS/. Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has pointed to the need to develop common cooperation principles in Eurasia within the Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM).
Speaking at a plenary session of the ASEM forum that got underway in the capital of Mongolia on Friday, he noted that Russia’s peculiarity is that it is located in both Europe and Asia and that "ASEM is a unique platform for the formation of a unifying agenda."
"The forum’s geography makes it possible to deal with the most ambitious projects, find additional sources of growth and development for each country in cooperation with each other. That’s why we should try to develop the conduct principles in Eurasia common for all within ASEM," Medvedev said.
He noted that "we are talking about our common home and common future, and events like the ones that occurred in France show how fragile this home is and that we should work together to build a new system of relations that would match our time."
Medvedev added that, considering the importance of deepening cooperation, "it would be useful to resume meetings between the economy ministers of the ASEM member-countries, which have not been held for more than ten years, naturally, working on the agenda thoroughly."
