This provides a solid foundation for further development of the relations between our countries based on the principles of equality and mutual respect. I am confident that today the relations see the most favorable context in recent years, which should be used fully to deepen and intensify bilateral cooperation in the name of prosperity and well-being of our peoples,” Vladimir Makei said.
