SOCHI, May 20. /TASS/. The Thai authorities expect that the Russia - ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) summit that is held in Sochi on Friday will result in the strengthening of Russia’s economic relations with the Association’s member countries, Foreign Minister of Thailand Don Pramudvinai told TASS in an exclusive interview on the eve of the summit.
"We expect an increase in the trade and investment volume, as well as the expansion of relations and deepening of economic cooperation between ASEAN and Russia.
