Russia and Israel have overcome the downturn in trade and economic cooperation, while Western sanctions continue to affect his state, said Wednesday in tel Aviv, the head of the Federation Council Committee on international Affairs Konstantin Kosachev.

Israel is not involved in the sanctions pressure on the Russian Federation and is not subject to Russian retaliatory countermeasures, but had, according to Kosachev, be careful not to complicate relations with third countries.

«The negative trend seems to have been able to overcome. The decrease in turnover in the first and second quarter of the current year not recorded, there is even a small plus», — said Kosachev.

«As you know, Israel is not involved in the anti-Russian sanctions of the West, but, of course, feels their influence. In any case, many Israeli entrepreneurs show in these circumstances extra caution, not wanting complications with their partners in third countries, primarily in the USA», — said Russian Senator.

Kosachev, visited Israel to participate in a joint meeting of defense and foreign committees of the parliaments of the two countries. One of the main topics of the meeting were the state of Russian-Israeli relations and prospects for their development.

The greatest prospects for cooperation the Senator sees in the fields of agriculture, high technologies and gas power.

«Today, we talked primarily about cooperation in the field of agriculture, particularly in the context of already existing or planned projects with participation of Israeli companies in a number of subjects of the Russian Federation in the field of dairy production», — said Kosachev.

«We talked about cooperation in the sphere of high technologies, in particular in the IT sector. The third theme, in my opinion, very interesting, is the gas industry due to the fact that Israel develops offshore fields», he added.
