It affected a number of international guests and partners from the Public Chamber of the RF, non-governmental agencies and scientists from Russia, the citizens of Serbia and Bulgaria. However, there were about thirty observers and it is also a very good result in view of the activities that we held, and people’s wish to come to Pridnestrovie,” - the diplomat said.

Ilya Morozov, in his turn, thanked the Pridnestrovian side for the opportunity to be involved in such a significant event for Pridnestrovie. During the meeting, the representative of the Republic of Srpska told the Pridnestrovian side about the peculiarities of the foreign economic activity, shared his experience in the development of different spheres of vital activity of the state. The parties discussed the promising areas of cooperation between the republics in the trade and economic field.

During the meeting, Vitaly Ignatiev told the representative of the Republic of Srpska about current problems and challenges, faced by the republic for a long time, especially in the context of the synchronization of blockade-restrictive actions on the part of Moldova and Ukraine.

The head of the ministry noted that the similarity of historical processes and the direction of the foreign policy vector of Pridnestrovie and the Republic of Srpska could serve as a basis for future cooperation in various fields.

The sides agreed to develop cooperation on a number of directions.
