MOSCOW, July 11 (Itar-Tass) - Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said the potential of relations between Russia and Malaysia gives chances to hope for bigger cooperation.
Opening the talks with his Malaysian counterpart Anifah Aman on Thursday, Lavrov said: “We value our relations and we seek to strengthen them in the future.”
The common positions on the events in the world and ways to resolve them help develop the dialogue. “This is related to the tasks in the Asia Pacific Region and different multilateral structures where Russia and Malaysia are the participants. Malaysia is one of Russia’s key partners in the region. Cooperation in different fields develops, but the potential allows us to hope for bigger results,” the Russian foreign minister said.
For his part, Anifah Aman said this was his third visit to Moscow. “We seek to bring closer to Russia. Our interests coincide in many fields. We realize that it is important to further strengthen cooperation with Russia,” the Malaysian minister said.
