Russian President Vladimir Putin met with the Prime Minister of Thailand Prayut Chan-o-cha at the opening of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN)-Russia summit in Sochi on Thursday.

The Russian leader praised the relations between the two countries, saying that "despite the well-known situation in the economy and the global economy, nevertheless, our partnership is successfully developing in all directions."

Thai Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha thanked Russia for its support, saying it helps Thailand to "maintain our independence."

He said “nine of them are state agreements and five are private. And we intend to implement these agreements in order to obtain concrete results”.

This year the ASEAN-Russia Dialogue Partnership marks its 20th anniversary and will be held under the slogan: ‘Russia-ASEAN: Towards Strategic Partnership for the Sake of the Common Good.' The two day summit is due to expand cooperation among participating states on a range of issues, including regional security and the fight against terrorism.
