KHABAROVSK, November 11 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia will protect its interests in the Arctic and will make investments in regional exploration, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev said at a meeting with workers of the Amurkabel enterprise here on Friday.

“All decisions to this effect are not just prepared, they are taken,” he noted. “If we do not do it, other countries will act there,” Medvedev pointed out. “The Arctic, a region of the Arctic Ocean, is our neighbouring seas, this is our territory, our expanses,” the president remarked. “If we do not invest in this, the countries from other regions will come there,” he warned. Several countries from other regions already stated about their interests in the Arctic, Medvedev noted. “So they are going to come there, and we are not going to,” the president stressed ironically. “We will obligatorily make investments in this research and will protect our interests in the region,” Medvedev underlined.
