Earlier in the day, Medvedev and his Thai counterpart Prayut Chan-o-cha held bilateral talks in the Russian city of St. Petersburg.
“The discussion of economic issues was a significant part of the talks, because we are noting the positive moments and the difficult ones. On the positive side, I would mention the investment cooperation," Medvedev said after talks with the Thai prime minister.
The Russian prime minister added that there are problematic economic issues that the sides agreed to pay attention to.
On Tuesday, Prayut, heading a delegation of the country's officials and businessmen, started a four-day visit to Russia. On May 19-20, the Thai officials are expected to visit the Russia-ASEAN summit in the Russian resort city of Sochi, where Medvedev and Prayut will once again discuss key issues of bilateral trade and economic cooperation.
According to the Russian Ministry of Industry and Trade, the trade between the two countries exceeded $2 billion in 2015.
