Bahrain has created a list of companies that are ready to cooperate with the enterprises located in Russia's southwestern Crimean Peninsula, a member of the Russian parliament's upper house said Thursday.

SIMFEROPOL (Sputnik) — Earlier in December, an official Russian delegation, including several Russia's lawmakers from Crimea, visited the Gulf nation.

"They have been interested in a wide range of areas. They are agriculture, tourism and construction. There is a proposal to develop a joint fishing enterprise. There is even a list of companies, which are ready to buy our agricultural products. They have given it to us and the issue is being worked out now," Olga Kovitidi, who was a member of the delegation, said during a press conference at the Rossiya Segodnya International Information Agency's press office in Crimea.

Bahraini businesses are interested in cooperation with their Crimean counterparts, she stated, adding that the delegation from the Gulf country is expected to visit the peninsula in 2017.

Russia's historical region of Crimea rejoined the country after a 2014 referendum. Almost 97 percent of the region's population voted for reunification in a referendum. Sevastopol, which has a federal city status, supported the move by 95.6 percent of votes.
