ASTANA, November 27 (Itar-Tass) — Kazakh Prime Minister Serik Akhmetov and Russian Deputy Prime Minister Vladislav Surkov have discussed the two countries’ cooperation in developing navigations systems.
“I believe that we have a common interest to introduce navigation technologies on the basis of Glonass on the territories of Russia and Kazakhstan,” Surkov told a news conference after the talks on Tuesday.
He emphasized that Russia has no intention to own a controlling stake as concerns the development of navigation systems and is ready to implement projects in partnership with Kazakhstan, share technologies and provide co-financing if it is necessary.
“We are ready to be flexible and hope that we will define the contours of cooperation already until the end of the year,” Surkov said.
Kazakh Deputy Prime Minister Kairat Kelimbetov said in turn Kazakhstan demonstrates great interest in cooperation with Russia in this sphere and actively studies the issue.
“This will be that very project within the framework of the development of our relations inside the Common Economic Space and bilateral relations that will boost our ties and infrastructure,” Kelimbetov said.
