MOSCOW, February 14 (Itar-Tass) - Russia’s first vice-premier Igor Shuvalov will leave for Paris within the next few weeks to continue talks on Russia’s accession to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), OECD Secretary-General Angel Gurria told Russian President Vladimir Putin at a meeting on Thursday.
“We have the privilege to receive Shuvalov in Paris in the next few weeks,” Gurria said. He added that he had already met a group of Russian deputies led by Duma Vice-Speaker Alexander Zhukov. The OECD secretary-general stressed the importance of that meeting because Russia’s accession to the OECD should be accompanied by considerable legislative changes.
Gurria thanked the Russian team which is taking part in the talks. They include presidential aides Elvira Nabiullina and Yuri Ushakov; Andrei Belousov, the head of the Russian Ministry of Economic Development, and Andrei Denisov, the first deputy head of the Russian Foreign Ministry. Mr. Angel Gurria expressed separate gratitude to Kseniya Yudayeva for assistance in organization of the G-20 summit.
