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.
Russia’s Emergencies Ministry intends to enhance bilateral dialogue with the SDC and continue annual consultations and exchange of information on matters of mutual interest. These include conducting joint humanitarian operations in foreign countries, improving international mechanisms for emergency response procedures and providing support for the International Search and Rescue Advisory Group (INSARAG).
The declaration signed with the Swiss Federal Office for Civil Protection envisages the monitoring and forecasting of emergencies, the development of early-warning systems, managing the governing bodies’ activities during crisis situations as well as the exchange of new technologies.
