HANNOVER, April 8 (Itar-Tass) – Russian President Vladimir Putin has set the task to increase trade turnover between Russia and Germany up to 100 billion U.S. dollars.
Speaking at a press conference on Monday, Putin said, “Now trade turnover between the two countries reaches 74 billion dollars.”
The Russian president cited the Netherlands as a positive example. He is expected to make a brief visit. Putin said trade turnover between Russia and the Netherlands amounted to 82 billion U.S. dollars.
“Our trade can reach 100 billion dollars as a minimum and we’ll achieve this goal,” the Russian president said.
He stressed that “German Chancellor Angela Merkel and I have different views on certain issues”. However, “all discussions with the German partners are being held in a constructive, benevolent and open atmosphere”, the Russian president said.
In his view, “such style will help demonstrate new achievements.”
