The meeting took place

Sanctions cannot stop Russia's cooperation with other countries, including with the states of Southeast Asia, Vladimir Putin said. On Thursday, November 15, the Russian president took part in the East Asian Summit in Singapore, after which he answered Russian journalists ’questions about sanctions, Donbas, key topics of an upcoming conversation in Argentina with Donald Trump and a peace treaty with Japan.
On the sidelines of the summit, the Russian leader spoke with US Vice President Michael Pence, who sat on Putin’s left. And the assistant to the president of the USA on national safety, the expert in the field of control over armaments John Bolton was connected to their conversation.
Later, answering journalists' questions, Putin said that he had touched problems of strategic stability with Pence, including the fate of the INF. He said that the other day in Paris, during a working lunch with Donald Trump, they were able to participate in the discussion, during which "they spoke quite meaningfully on security issues and on economic development, on regional issues." “Now, with the vice-president, we have roughly touched on the same thing,” Putin noted.
The problem of strategic stability is also on the agenda of the upcoming meeting with Donald Trump in Argentina on the margins of the G20 summit. "We need to understand what will happen with the START-3 Treaty, what will happen within the framework of the Treaty on Medium and Short Range Missiles, how events will develop here," the Russian president said. "There are other issues related to how our mutual economic relations will develop," Putin outlined possible topics for the meeting.
The plenary session itself began with a greeting from the Prime Minister of Singapore. The speeches of state leaders were held in a closed regime from the press. After the meeting, Vladimir Putin went out to Russian journalists. Answering the question whether the new Western sanctions would prevent Russian cooperation with the countries of Southeast Asia, he noted that it was impossible to stop development. “Any politically motivated restrictions that go into the economic sphere hinder the development of the economy: they hinder us and our partners are hampered, including those imposing these sanctions,” Putin said. But this cannot stop development, he stressed.
Now about 25 percent of Russia's trade turnover falls on Asian countries, last year it increased by a quarter, which is about 200 billion dollars.
“We have concluded a free trade agreement between the Eurasian Economic Union and Vietnam, with China, negotiations with Singapore on the march with Singapore. Traditional relations with many countries of this region. And, of course, nothing can harm or interfere with them. We will work confidently, and I have no doubts with good prospects, "the Russian leader said.
Therefore, cooperation will continue in all directions, including digital. "Singapore, for example, promotes the idea of ​​smart cities. Where do smart cities come from? They are taken from modern high technologies, including digital technologies. We will work," Putin said. He called Singapore a good example of development, including in the digital sphere. From the Russian cities, according to Putin, from the point of view of digital development and city management in general, the leading positions in the world are occupied by Moscow.
Putin also commented on Russia's possible refusal to participate in the Davos forum due to the restriction on the presence of a number of Russian businessmen there. Each Russian businessman and each company can decide on participation in Davos themselves, he said. “It definitely will not affect the authority of Russia in the world economy,” Putin said, adding that the authority of any country in the world economy depends primarily on macroeconomic indicators.
And Russia in this regard feels confident, Putin made it clear. So, our country is quite satisfied with the price of oil in the region of $ 70 per barrel, he said, recalling that the Russian budget has been drawn from the estimated price of $ 40 per barrel. "This gives us the opportunity to feel confidently, work calmly, steadily, achieve very good results, which are reflected in macroeconomics," the president said.
Putin commented on international topics. Speaking about the Donbass, he said that the current authorities of Ukraine are not able to cope with this problem, and she has no other way than to solve the problem. “I’ll still have to negotiate. I hope that people who will lead the country in the future, whoever it is, ... will come to the conclusion that there is no other way but peaceful route, and the Minsk agreements should be implemented,” said the president of the Russian Federation.
According to him, it’s now pointless to meet in the Norman format with the participation of the current President of Ukraine, given the election campaign in Ukraine and the fact that the current Ukrainian authorities "have not yet shown a desire to fulfill the Minsk agreements." "Even the law on the special status of Donbass, which was adopted by the Parliament of Ukraine, has not yet entered into force, and this is a key element of the settlement," he said.
As for the elections in the Donbass, they were inevitable, it is the reaction of the people living there to the political situation in the country, Putin noted. He also advised the West to condemn not the elections in the territories of the unrecognized republics, but the political killings taking place there.
Putin also told the details of the conversation with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. Following the meeting in Singapore on the eve, Putin and Abe agreed that Russia and Japan would intensify the negotiation process on the issue of a peace treaty on the basis of the 1956 Soviet-Japanese declaration. Not everything is clear in the declaration itself, therefore the dialogue with Japan on the basis of this document requires serious study, the Russian leader said. He recalled that in 1956 the USSR and Japan signed a declaration, which states that after the signing of the peace treaty, the Soviet Union is ready to transfer two southern islands of the Kuril Ridge to Japan. However, the document “does not say on what basis to transfer, does not say under whose sovereignty these islands will remain,” Putin stressed. Now the parties have decided to return to the discussion.
