    Crimean Deputy Prime Minister siad that the Crimean authorities are going to invite a delegation of Bahrain's businessmen for the next year.

    SIMFEROPOL (Russia), (Sputnik) – Crimean authorities are going to send an official letter to invite a delegation of Bahrain's businessmen, which is expected to visit the peninsula next year, Crimean Deputy Prime Minister Georgy Muradov said on Wednesday.

    "We will send an appropriate invitation … We will wait for their arrival. I expect the businessmen to arrive in late spring, in May-June," Muradov told Sputnik in Crimea radio station.

    He pointed out that the Bahrain's businessmen were ready to work in Crimea in the spheres of tourism, construction, agriculture, baking as well as fishing industry.

    "They are ready to invest in these branches of our economy in order to produce goods for themselves. Our cooperation may be perspective," Muadov added.

    Earlier this month a Crimean delegation visited Bahrain and met with King Hamad bin Isa al Khalifa.

    The Crimean peninsula seceded from Ukraine and reunified with Russia after more than 96 percent of local voters supported the move in a referendum in March 2014. Kiev, as well as the European Union, the United States and their allies, did not recognize the move and consider the peninsula to be an occupied territory.

    Nevertheless, over 60 delegations from dozens of countries have visited Crimea this year, defying Western restrictions, including those from France, Italy, Jordan and many other nations.
