Reynders held talks with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov in Moscow on Tuesday during which the sides discussed the activity of a Russian-Belgian commission and Belgian companies in Russia, and also the signing of conventions aimed at developing ties.
The diplomat said the Belgian side welcomed a convention on air traffic with Russia, as well as opening new air routes, including to St. Petersburg. “This will have a positive impact on rapprochement of our nations,” the minister said.
