President Vladimir Putin: Mr President,
Allow me once again to wish you a warm welcome to Russia.
We have the real conditions in place for continuing to develop our bilateral cooperation, both political and economic, as well as our work together in the military sphere and other areas.
I want to emphasise once again that we see Indonesia as one of our most important partners in the Asia-Pacific region and in the world as a whole.
My consultations in narrow format with the President confirmed that we share similar positions on the main issues on the international agenda. We have excellent potential for developing our economic relations and building up our military-technical cooperation.
Indonesia is one of Asia’s biggest suppliers of energy resources and we consider it extremely important to coordinate our work on world energy markets in order to ensure that our actions do not have negative consequences for our countries, but on the contrary, contribute to increasing cooperation and helping us settle the global energy problems that we face today.
We are very pleased to see you, Mr President.
President of Indonesia Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono: (as translated): Thank you, Mr Putin, and thank you, colleagues.
Thank you very much for the warm reception we have received right from the first day, when we visited St Petersburg, and that continues now here in Moscow. We would like to strengthen the relations between Russia and Indonesia over the coming future. Russia is a country of importance for Indonesia and it plays a very important part on the international stage. We therefore wish to develop our bilateral relations with your country in a broad range of areas.
