    SANAA, June 29 (RIA Novosti) - Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Wednesday that enhancing cooperation between Russia and the Muslim world would ensure global security.

    "It is important for us to increase the efficiency of Russia's interaction with the Islamic world to ensure security and resolve a number of international and regional problems," Lavrov said upon his arrival here in Yemen's capital.

    The diplomat expressed his gratitude to Yemen's authorities and Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, the secretary general of the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC), for his invitation to the conference of OIC foreign ministers.

    Lavrov said that his visit was part of efforts to enhance cooperation between Russia and the Muslim world.

    During upcoming meetings with Yemen's authorities, Lavrov plans to discuss the situation in Iraq and the Middle East, conflicts in Africa and political and economic bilateral relations between Russia and Yemen.
