MANILA, November 10. /TASS/. Russia's top lawmaker, Valentina Matviyenko, said on Monday cooperation with other countries in the Asia-Pacific region was one of Russia’s top foreign policy priorities.

“Russia, like the Philippines, is part of the Asia-Pacific region, and we are interested in creating a common, indivisible and non-aligned security system on Asia-Pacific territory and strengthening multilateral cooperation,” said Matviyenko, Federation Council Speaker.

“A stable and peaceful Asia-Pacific will guarantee that the region will remain one of the world's fastest growing economies. Therefore, it is necessary to enhance an atmosphere of trust both in bilateral and multilateral formats,” she said, adding that Russia wanted to participate in various integration processes in the region.

The president of the Philippine senate, Franklin Drilon, said the republic was “optimistic about the way Russia focuses its interests on the Asia-Pacific region.” “This will help improve relations between our countries,” he added.
