MOSCOW, October 25 (Itar-Tass) — Russian and U.S. positions concerning EU’s decision to collect greenhouse gas emissions quotas from air carriers flying through Europe’s air space coincide, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Sergei Ivanov said on the sidelines of the forum Finnish Business in Moscow on Tuesday.
“The positions of Russia and the U.S. on this issue are similar,” he said. “We will not obey any unilateral decisions.”
According to earlier reports, Beijing and New Delhi also share Moscow and Washington’s opinions.
