Meeting with President of Bulgaria Rumen Radev

Excerpts from the transcript:

Dmitry Medvedev: Mr President, I welcome you from all my heart in Moscow. This is your first visit to Russia as the head of Bulgaria. It is obvious that our peoples share solid bonds of friendship and spiritual affinity. In this context there is no doubt that your visit has special significance.

Despite our centuries-old friendship, we have things to accomplish. Our agenda is quite broad, and includes stepping up trade and economic relations, since unfortunately trade between our countries has been recently shrinking rather than increasing. It is the task of our colleagues in charge of the relevant portfolios in the Government to create an even greater and better momentum for cooperation in this field.
