RIO DE JANEIRO, June 21 (Itar-Tass) — Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev on Thursday met Turkmen President Gurbanguly Berdymukhamedov on the sidelines of the RIO+20 UN Conference on Sustainable Development to discuss economic cooperation between Russia and Turkmenistan. The two leaders agreed to continue working contacts.
Medvedev also met his Norwegian counterpart Jens Stoltenberg who’s attending the RIO+20 UN Conference on Sustainable Development. The Russian and Norwegian prime ministers discussed the development of northern territories and energy cooperation.
“We’ve intercrossed at the RIO+20 forum. It’s a good chance to talk about Russian-Norwegian relations that have become more dynamic in recent years not without yours and my efforts,” Medvedev told Stoltenberg. He expressed the hope that the process would continue in future.
“Our companies have major joint projects. We have common initiatives and common responsibility for the future of our northern regions. That is why I am ready to discuss with you all questions of interest,” Medvedev emphasized.
The Norwegian prime minister said he was also pleased to have an opportunity to discuss themes on which the governments of the two countries had been working actively with Medvedev.
Stoltenberg suggested that he and the Russian prime minister focus on established areas of bilateral interaction such as cooperation in the Far North, including delimitation of the Russian-Norwegian border, as well as energy issues which are of mutual interest to both sides.
