He particularly welcomed the comprehensive inter-ministerial cooperation that our two countries established in many areas, pointing to the room for its further intensification.

The two officials also discussed the issue of implementation of business forums in the coming months and both sides stated that there are numerous potentials for further intensification of cooperation in the fields of trade, energy, agriculture, environmental protection, entrepreneurship, education, sports, culture and defense. A good quality contractual base between the two countries will certainly contribute to this, which is a good basis for the implementation of projects of mutual interest.
