Mr Minister,


It is a very good, and almost forgotten, feeling to meet in person. I am glad that the foreign ministers of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) member countries can hold talks in Moscow.

We appreciate this opportunity to discuss prospects for developing our strategic partnership in all areas: bilateral relations and cooperation within the SCO, BRICS, the UN and via other international platforms.

I cordially welcome you.
