Vladimir Putin names the priorities of Russia's policy in the Middle East
"They are the creation of a stable situation, the solution of international conflict situations, of regional conflicts, and the creation of conditions for the development of economic cooperation," the Russian President said in his interview with the Egyptian newspaper Al Ahram on the eve of his visit to Egypt which has been scheduled for April 26-27. According to Mr. Putin, of no small importance is cooperation in the humanitarian sphere. The head of the Russian state points out that Russia, just as earlier the Soviet Union, has very close relations with the Arab world. Mr. Putin believes that it is impossible to solve efficiently important global problems of international policy in the world today without taking into consideration the opinion of 300 million people living in the Middle East and North Africa. Vladimir Putin called for intensifying Russian-Egyptian economic cooperation. "This must be one of the priorities of our cooperation. We must contribute to direct contacts between our business communities," he said. In the opinion of Mr. Putin, the intensification of cooperation will give positive results in the spheres of high technologies, outer space and the power engineering. "W already have certain agreements between our big energy companies about the work on the Egyptian market and with Egyptian partners. We have a desire to work jointly, and this is the main thing. Our interest in Egypt and in its culture is great," the President said. Mr. Putin stated that last year the trade and economic contacts between Russia and Egypt had doubled in comparison with the previous year, but this amount is not yet sufficient, in the opinion of the head of the Russian state.
