The event was held after a meeting of the Eurasian Intergovernmental Council.
Excerpts from the transcript:
Mikhail Mishustin: Mr Golovchenko, I am delighted to see you. We are in regular contact with you and have frequent telephone conversations.
I would like to wholeheartedly welcome you and mention that we have really had a rather fruitful day today. We have settled a number of things, discussed our strategy and all other topics on the meeting’s agenda.
I would like to thank you as the chairperson and also Mikhail Myasnikovich for your professional work and to discuss some aspects of our bilateral relations with you.
Roman Golovchenko: Thank you, Mr Mishustin. You have aptly described everything.
In fact, many topics we discuss within the framework of the five EAEU states are being implemented as pilot projects at the level of our bilateral ties within the Union State. This allows us to accumulate positive experience, which we will be delighted to apply at the EAEU level. It is very important indeed to take advantage of all opportunities to discuss our bilateral relations, which are developing dynamically. Our heads of state hold talks frequently and in an involved manner, and you and I are in regular contact with one another as well. This is very good. Today we have a marvellous opportunity to compare notes and to discuss our immediate cooperation prospects in all spheres.
Mikhail Mishustin: Thank you.
