SOCHI, May 16 (Itar-Tass) - President Vladimir Putin said Russia could assist to South Africa to creating the atomic industry.
After the talks with South African President Jacob Zuma on Thursday, Putin said Russia was also planning to supply passenger aircraft to South Africa.
“Based on the considerable potential in nuclear power engineering Russia is ready to contribute to creating the atomic industry in South Africa,” the Russian president said.
In addition, Putin said there were prospects for cooperation in other fields of the fuel and energy sector, for example when using alternative energy sources.
“We’re planning to jointly produce a light multipurpose helicopter. The talks are being held to supply Russian passenger aircraft to South Africa,” the Russian president said.
He stressed that both countries intended to expand humanitarian contacts. “We seek to implement the 2013-2016 programme, which envisages organising exchanges between national museums and libraries, holding festivals and exhibitions, including on the base of the State Hermitage Museum and the Cape Town Museums,” Putin noted.
He pointed out that Russia and South Africa maintained cooperation within international associations, particularly within BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India and China) and the G-20. “President Zuma proposed to invite representatives of African countries to St Petersburg to take part in the G-20 summit. We laud this initiative,” Putin said.
Representatives of the African Union and NEPAD (New Partnership for Africa’s Development) will be invited, Putin added.
