ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations)
Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s opening remarks during a meeting with Foreign Minister of Thailand Don Pramudwinai, Moscow, February 8, 2019
Welcome to Moscow. We very much value our friendship with Thailand, our longtime partner in Southeast Asia. We enjoy a comprehensive political dialogue at all levels, as well as cooperation in security, trade, investments and culture. We are ready to continue this interaction. Today we will discuss these issues in detail, as well as our interaction in international affairs, including the developments in the Asia-Pacific region. It is especially useful given Thailand’s presidency in ASEAN this year.
Once again, welcome.
I am happy to see you all.
