MOSCOW, February 17. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia and the east African state of Eritrea should look for specific ways of working together in trade and the economy, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Monday, opening negotiations with counterpart Osman Saleh Mohammed.
“We appreciate our regular contacts and we are interested in intensifying them,” he said. “I am sure that we should turn our political dialogue into searching for specific spheres of interaction, first of all, in trade and the economy.”
Moscow aims also to build academic and educational contacts with Eritrea given that they “have their own history and traditions”, Lavrov added.
The two countries were closely connected by co-operation in the international arena, in the UN and on other international stages where “our positions are similar or coincide”. “Today we can exchange views on the challenges we face,” Lavrov said, as his visitor noted “a good opportunity to develop partnership”.
