Russia is eager to promote cooperation with ASEAN in the fight against terrorism
Russia is eager to promote cooperation with the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) in the fight against terrorism, organised crime, and drug traffic, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov stated in the course of his Monday talks with Myanmar Foreign Minister Nyan Win. “We intend to devote special attention to our cooperation with the countries of the Asia Pacific region,” the Russian minister stated. Myanmar, being as it is a member of ASEAN, “is actively contributing to the promotion of Russia’s contacts with that organisation.” Lavrov positively assessed “the two countries’ interaction, including cooperation on the world arena”. The ministerial negotiations were held during the official visit to Russia of Muang Aye, the deputy chairman of the State Council of Peace and Development of the Union of Myanmar. This is the first-ever visit of such a high-ranking Myanmar leader to Russia. Spokesman for the Russian Foreign Minister Mikhail Kamynin said “Russian business is evincing interest in prospecting and mining useful minerals in Myanmar, as well as in the development of the country’s hydraulic power system, transport and communication services”. “In demand in Russia are such Myanmar-produced goods as rubber, rice, fruits, sea products and ready-made garments,” he added. “Expansion of multifarious cooperation with Myanmar ranks among the most important tasks of our foreign policy in Southeast Asia,” Kamynin stated.
