Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s opening remarks during talks with Foreign Minister of Malaysia Saifuddin Abdullah, Bangkok, July 31, 2019
We highly value our relationship. Russian President Vladimir Putin and Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir bin Mohamad had a very productive meeting.
We expect that in September, Mr Mohamad will visit Vladivostok to participate in the Eastern Economic Forum. During our telephone conversation, you confirmed that he is looking forward to the trip, and we will be delighted to see him in Russia. As Foreign Ministry representatives, it will be a great honour for us if you also come to Vladivostok as part of the Malaysian delegation.
