Russia and Spain would step up mutually beneficial cooperation in 2010, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev and Spanish Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero said on Friday.

The pledge was made during a telephone conversation between Medvedev and Zapatero, the Kremlin said in a statement.

In the conversation, Medvedev and Zapatero discussed "issues related to Russian-Spanish cooperation, above all in the context of Spain's presidency of the European Union (EU)," said the statement.

The two leaders also exchanged Christmas and New Year greetings, the statement said.

Spain took over the EU's six-month rotating presidency on Jan. 1.

Medvedev last met Zapatero in September 2009 on the sidelines of an international conference on global security in Yaroslavl, 250 km northeast of Moscow.
