    Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov meets the President of the United Arab Emirates Federal National Council to discuss situation in international affairs on Friday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov meets the President of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) Federal National Council, Amal Qubaisi to discuss situation in international affairs on Friday.

    "We consider your visit as another confirmation of a very close relationship of trust between our countries," Lavrov said at a meeting with Qubaisi.

    According to the minister, the leaders of the two countries "regularly communicate in person and over the phone, there is a very good relationship between the Ministries of Foreign Affairs, as well as between investment structures."

    Lavrov noted that Russian and the UAE citizens have warm feelings for each other, as well as that the flow of Russian tourists to the UAE is increasing.

    "The successful development of our relations in all the spheres is actively promoted by the contacts between the parliaments. We are glad that those they are developing intensively. We appreciate the opportunity to meet with you at the Foreign Ministry, and I am looking forward to a fruitful discussion regarding, first of all, the situation in international affairs, and how our countries can coordinate their efforts to promote solutions to the many problems," Lavrov said.

    Earlier on Friday, Qubaisi met with Russian lower house speaker Sergei Naryshkin, discussing issues of bilateral relations, trade, economic and investment ties.

    Russia-UAE relations stand out for their high level of political dialogue and intensive exchange of delegations. In September 2007, Putin paid the first official visit to the UAE in the history of the two countries' bilateral relations. Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan visited Russia in September 2006, June 2009, October 2012 and September 2013. On October 11, 2015 President Putin met with Prince Al-Nahyan on the sidelines of the Formula-1 races in Sochi.
