OREANDA-NEWS  Dmitry Medvedev sends greetings to Prime Minister of Finland Juha Sipila on a national holiday, the 100th anniversary of independence.

 The message reads, in part:

“Russian-Finnish relations are based on the solid traditions of friendship, neighbourliness and mutual respect. We continue to promote trade, economic, investment, research and technical, cultural and humanitarian cooperation, and implement large-sale bilateral and international projects as we expand ties between our business communities and regions.

I am convinced that cooperation between our governments will contribute to the strengthening of Russia-Finland interaction and will create favourable conditions for launching new and promising initiatives in many spheres.”
