"The relations between Russia and Israel are enjoying great growth and development… Trade in 2017 increased by nearly 20 percent and totaled about $3 billion… Today we have resumed negotiations on the preparation of a free trade agreement with the EAEU member states," Koren said at a reception marking the 70th anniversary of Israel's independence.
