Beginning of Russian-Korean talks in expanded format

November 13, 2013, Seoul

President of The Republic of Korea Park Geun-Hye (translated from Russian): The President of the Russian Federation and I have just had a very fruitful and constructive discussion about all the different areas and topical issues in cooperation between our countries. We discussed the future of our cooperation. I am sure that this will lay new foundations for strengthening our ties.

Here at this meeting in expanded format I would like to continue the discussion, looking now at the matters that we did not have time to examine during the meeting in narrow format. As it is now time for lunch, I propose that we continue our discussion over the meal.

President of Russia Vladimir Putin: Thank you very much.

I want to thank you too for the first part of our talks. It really was a very substantive discussion and we can now continue the talks in an informal setting and expand on what we talked about just now at the meeting in narrow format.
