GENEVA, October 26. /TASS/. Russian Emergencies Minister Vladimir Puchkov has signed joint declarations on cooperation with the head of the Department of Humanitarian Aid within the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) Manuel Bessler and Director of the Swiss Federal Office for Civil Protection Benno Buhlmann.
"We are experienced professionals able to work under tough conditions. I am sure that new dimensions will be added to our cooperation that will pave the way for boosting interaction between Russia and Switzerland in various fields," Puchkov said.
