Beginning of meeting with Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni

President of Russia Vladimir Putin: Mr Prime Minister, friends,

Let me greet you again and welcome you to Russia this time. We met just recently in China. It is a great pleasure to see you again.

During your time as foreign minister, you visited Russia often as head of the intergovernmental commission. Regrettably, we have seen a drop in our trade, but the moment you became prime minister, our bilateral trade began to grow again and was up 28 percent over the first two months of this year.

We have very intensive contacts at the political level. Italy holds a non-permanent seat on the UN Security Council. We are very pleased to have this chance to have a calm exchange of views on everything I mentioned during your working visit.

To be continued.
