MOSCOW. Oct 25 (Interfax) - Surinamese Foreign Minister Yldiz Pollack-Beighle will pay a visit to Russia next week, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said at a plenary session of the State Duma on Wednesday.

"Foreign Minister Pollack-Beighle will pay the first visit of the kind to Moscow next week," Ryabkov said.

The Surinamese finance minister visited Russia a short time ago "to determine areas of economic cooperation," he said.

"Political ties and contacts between the two countries have been on the rise," he said.
