MOSCOW, March 1. /TASS/. Russia is interested in expanding trading, economic and military-technical ties with Niger, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said at a meeting with Niger’s Foreign Minister Ibrahim Yacoubou.
Lavrov recalled that in February the two countries marked the 45th anniversary of diplomatic relations.
"Russia is interested in strengthening friendly relations with Niger, advancing the political dialog and looking for ways of expanding trading, economic and military-technical ties," Lavrov said.
"We see eye to eye on most topical issues on the current agenda - both international and regional ones," Lavrov said. "We take note of the fact that our Niger friends take into account Russia’s approaches in the context of their participation in multilateral forums. For our part we pay the closest attention to the opinion of our African partners."
Lavrov said he hoped to discuss with his Niger counterpart "the entire range of bilateral issues and interaction in the international scene."
