Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has met with his visiting counterpart from Burma, Nyan Win, to discuss bilateral relations.
The Russian foreign ministry said Monday that the two had exchanged views on fighting terrorism, drug-trafficking and on other world and regional problems.
Russia's Zarubezhneft oil company also signed a memorandum of understanding with Burma's energy ministry, one of a number of bilateral documents signed.
Nyan Win is part of a delegation of senior officials headed by General Maung Aye, who is vice chairman of Burma's State Peace and Development Council and commander-in-chief of the army.
The Russian Foreign Ministry says strengthening ties with Burma is one of Moscow's foreign-policy aims in Southeast Asia.
