BEIJING, September 3. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin has said at a meeting with Czech Republic’s President Milos Zeman that he is confident trade turnover between the two countries will grow.
Putin added that existing problems should be solved by joint efforts. "We highly appreciate your position about objective assessment of recent history, the times of war. We fully share your approach that today’s problems should be solved not by dividing and turning away from each other, but by joining efforts," the Russian president stressed.
"Trade turnover between Russia and Czech Republic has fallen lately. I really think that it is temporary, and that everything will return to the stage of resuming growth," Putin said.
Refusing interpreter’s service, Zeman talked with Putin in Russian and told the Russian leader about his plans on giving a speech at the upcoming session of the UN General Assembly.
"I want to give a speech on a topic that was, frankly speaking, already raised by [Russian Foreign Minister Sergey] Mr Lavrov," Zeman said noting that he means fight against terrorism. "In my opinion, it is necessary to adopt a [UN] Security Council resolution on this matter," the Czech president said stressing that a similar resolution was adopted after terrorist attacks in Somalia.
He also proposed to establish international anti-terrorist groups. However, the activity of such groups will not be directed at occupying territories but rather at "illuminating sensitive points of terrorist organizations" - that is, at leaders of terrorist organizations and training camps for terrorists, Zeman explained.
The Czech president asked Putin to support his proposals.
