MOSCOW, September 10 (Itar-Tass) - The indicators of the Russian-Libyan trade volume in 2012 were the most considerable over the recent twelve years, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Tuesday, summing up the results of talks with his Libyan counterpart Muhammad Abdelaziz.
In his words, although bilateral trade gained only $250 million in 2012, the two sides have mutual intention to raise its amount significantly.
“We hope that the visit of the minister (of foreign affairs and international cooperation of Libya) will make it possible to expand contacts in all spheres,” Lavrov said, adding, “We have a very solid basis - many dozens of years of friendly relations between our two countries and peoples.”
Abdelaziz, in turn, lauded the readiness of Russia’s companies to return in Libya and resume their activities in the both old and new fields.
