MOSCOW, July 9 (Itar-Tass) - Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov is expected to have talks with his Romanian counterpart Titus Corlatean for a detailed discussion of the current status of and prospects for bilateral trade, as well as pressing international issues and particularly the problems of international security.
“Significant attention will be given to trade, as the sides have a mutual interest in making it more dynamic and modernized,” the Russian Foreign Ministry’s official spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said.
“We hope to draw the attention of the Romanian side to a whole range of problems the Russian investors working in Romania,” he said.
As part of the itinerary, Lavrov and Corlatean will be supposed to sign two important inter-governmental documents - an agreement on instituting the Russian Center of Culture and Science in Bucharest and the Romanian Culture Institute in Moscow, which also regulates the terms of functioning of both institutions, and a program for cooperation in science, education, mass media, sports young people, and tourism.
Also, the two ministers will put their signatures under a plan for consultations between their ministries for the years 2013 and 2014.
As Lavrov and Corlatean take up the pressing international issues of the international agenda, “Moscow will once again make known its fundamental approaches to a buildup of relations between the EU and NATO,” Lukashevich said.
The Russian side would like to hold an exchange of opinions on the ways of improving the architecture of European security with an emphasis on the problems posed by the antiballistic missile systems, he said.
NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said earlier that the first three phases of the antiballistic missile plan will be implemented in full, including the deployment of facilities in Poland and Romania.
Romanian President Trajan Basescu came up with the assurances that the emergence of an antimissile missile base at Deveselu “won’t up any danger to Russia and won’t mean a hostile attitude towards it on the part of Romanian government.”
