Republika Srpska Prime Minister Zeljka Cvijanovic spoke today in Banjaluka with a delegation of the Legislative Assembly of St. Petersburg, headed by Assembly Chairman Vyecheslav Makarov, about prospects for improving the economic and cultural cooperation between Republika Srpska and St. Petersburg.
They exchanged information about significant Russian investments in Republika Srpska, says a press release from the Republika Srpska Government’s Public Relations Office.
They discussed prospects for cooperation in new projects in the context of reforms the Government implemented with the view of unburdening the economy and creating new jobs in Republika Srpska.
They also discussed the current political and economic topics in Republika Srpska and BiH, with a focus on prospects for improving the economic and cultural cooperation between Republika Srpska and St. Petersburg, that is, the Russian Federation.
Cvijanovic has said that traditionally good relations between Republika Srpska and the Russian Federation are the real example of partnership without any political conditioning where there is room for economic cooperation.
They concluded that the cooperation between Republika Srpska and the Russian Federation is extremely good and that it should be strengthened even more in all fields.
Cvijanovic expressed particular gratitude to Russian partners because the positions of Republika Srpska are heard in the UN Security Council thanks to the Russian Ambassador to the UN and because of Russia’s strong support to the preservation of the Dayton status of Republika Srpska.
