Broader Cooperation Between U.N. And Private Sector Meets Russian Interests

The broadening of the United Nations' cooperation with the private sector meets Russia's interests, Russian Foreign Minister Igor Ivanov said on Monday at a meeting of Russian business people with senior executives of U.N. bodies and programmes. Ivanov said Moscow hopes for a greater influx of foreign investments and technologies into the Russian economy, including under U.N. programmes. On the other hand, Russia hopes that Russian business people will derive additional practical benefit from the introduction of international experience. Speaking of concrete areas of cooperation between the United Nations and the Russian private sector, Ivanov named, among others, rendering support for U.N. peacemaking programmes. In particular, this support could include supplies of materials, aircraft and road vehicles, and specialists' participation. Ivanov proposed inviting private companies to participate in financial and technical cooperation within U.N. frameworks. According to the Russian foreign minister, such cooperation will provide additional opportunities for enhancing Russia's international prestige and establishing contacts with other participants in programmes for cooperation with the United Nations, many of which belong to the international business elite.
