LONDON, August 2 (Itar-Tass) — Russian President Vladimir Putin is pleased with his Thursday’s meeting with British Prime Minister David Cameron and expects the two countries to increase bilateral trade turnover by 2.5 times in the next few years.
“We discussed political contacts and economic relations. The discussion was sincere and positive,” Putin told journalists.
Putin complained about the small scale of trade and economic ties. “Let’s face it: our trade turnover is small and is estimated at mere 21 billion dollars. The volume of our trade with Germany amounts to 72 billion dollars,” Putin said, adding that Russia and Britain could try to increase their bilateral trade volume at least to 50 billion dollars.
“We searched for new opportunities and areas of cooperation. Nuclear energy is one of them. There are other areas as well. We are planning to launch several British satellites,” the Russian head of state said.
