LONDON, August 2 (Itar-Tass) —— Conflict among the shareholders of the TNK-BP oil corporation was one of the issues discussed at Thursday's talks between Russian President Vladimir Putin and British Prime Minister David Cameron.
The problem was raised by the British side, Putin told reporters before departure from London.
"We talked about the conflict among the TNK-BP shareholders," he said. "The issue was taken up by the Prime Minister."
Putin answered in the negative to a question on whether Cameron and he had discussed a possible deal between the BP and the Russian corporation Rosneft.
"As regards Rosneft, no we didn't /discuss the transaction/," he said.
