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. In addition, it is important to strengthen the ties and cooperation with important regional organizations such as the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU), Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), and the Asia Cooperation Dialogue," Pramudvinai said.
He noted "the important role of Russia in promoting peace and prosperity in Southeast Asia and in the Asia-Pacific region."
