RIGA (Sputnik) — On August 15, a meeting of the Russian-Latvian intergovernmental commission took place in Riga after a four-year-long hiatus.
"Each country has to think about how its economy is developing. We [Russia and Latvia] see that we can work together, shoulder to shoulder," Augulis said in an interview with the Baltkom radio broadcaster.
The Russian-Latvian intergovernmental commission was established in 2007, with the commission's meeting earlier this August being the first since 2013.
Earlier in August, Latvian Prime Minister Maris Kucinskis at a meeting with Russian Transport Minister Maxim Sokolov said that Latvia was interested in developing constructive cooperation with Russia in border protection, migration, customs and transport.
