The Sputnik news agency has reported that HSH Prince Albert and Russian President Vladimir Putin have met in Moscow to mark the positive development of bilateral relations.

Sputnik, the state-owned and operated online news in Russia, reported that Putin said: “I am very glad that we began your visit with a milestone event – with opening an exhibition devoted to the ties between Monaco and Russia. We saw at first hand how long and how constructive relations between Russia and Monaco have been developing.”

The president was speaking after the two leaders visited an exhibition entitled “Romanovs-Grimaldi: Three Centuries of History” in the State Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow.

“Now, 10 years after reestablishment of diplomatic relations between our countries, I mark with a great pleasure an excellent level of cooperation between Russia and Monaco in various spheres. I am sure that Moscow shares this point of view and is going to develop such cooperation,” Prince Albert II said, according to Sputnik.

A trade mission by Monaco’s Economic Board coincides with the Sovereign’s visit to Moscow. The Prince was due to leave Moscow on Thursday evening.
