MOSCOW, September 22. /ITAR-TASS/. A regular ministerial meeting of the Asia Cooperation Dialogue forum will take place in Saudi Arabia on November 25, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Monday.
Foreign ministers of the forum’s member states gathered for a working session on the sidelines of the 69th United Nations General Assembly in New York, the ministry said, adding that the Russian side was represented by Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov.
Participants had “an intense exchange of views on improving the efficiency of practical cooperation in various spheres,” the ministry said of the session. They confirmed “their intention to deepen coordination and expand multilateral interaction,” it said.
The Asia Cooperation Dialogue was inaugurated in 2002 under Thailand’s initiative to be Asia’s first continent-wide policy forum. It aims to promote Asian cooperation at a continental level and to help integrate separate regional organisations such as Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). Currently, the organisation has 33 member states from every sub-region of the Asian continent.
