Russia: Lavrov advances Russian business in Cambodia, talks Ukraine

Russian Federation, Moscow
March 4, 2015 at 10:10 GMT +00:00 · Published

Russian companies are set to get a boost in south-east Asia following talks between the Foreign Ministers Sergei Lavrov and Hor Namhong in Moscow on Wednesday.

Commenting after the meeting, Russia's leading diplomat said that "concrete steps" had been taken in discussions to advance investment projects in Cambodia. He went on to say that Russian companies are "deeply interested" in gaining access to the Asian country's markets. They signed a plan for consultations between the Foreign Ministries of Russia and Cambodia for the next three years.

Lavrov also spoke about allegations concerning the use of ballistic missiles in east Ukraine. He said that Moscow proposed to Washington staging talks based on factual evidence, not evidence of allegations, but so far they have not materialised.

The deal signed in February in Minsk will grant the Lugansk and Donetsk Regions a place at the negotiating table, according to Lavrov. That, he hoped, would pave the way to granting them their "special status" in "a new Ukrainian constitution".
