"We met in Manila at the beginning of the month, and today we’ll continue our dialogue in the Russian capital. We’re happy to have reached this level of relations, and confirm our commitment to their expansion in various fields in order to move to a new level," he said.
"As a sustainable political dialogue has been established, the meeting of presidents on the sidelines of the G20 summit on July 7 was crucially important.
