MOSCOW, September 18 (Itar-Tass) – Russian President Vladimir Putin, the CEO of the oil corporation Rosneft, Igor Sechin, and top executives of British Petroleum are holding talks, the subject of which is a broadening of the BP’s presence in Russia and expansion of relations with Russian companies.
The information was revealed Tuesday night by Putin’s Press Secretary, Dmitry Peskov.
He said that taking part in the talks on the BP’s side are Karl-Henric Svanberg and Group Chief Executive Robert Dudley.
“Igor Ivanonovich /second word being Sechin’s patronymic – Itar-Tass/ and his counterparts from the BP have asked President Putin to receive them,” Peskov said.
He refrained from clarifying what kind of a ‘broadening of presence’ in Russia was implied or what companies were being eyed for cooperation.
“This is the information of a corporate nature and only the company itself can specify it,” Peskov said.
