MOSCOW, September 2 (Itar-Tass) - Russia and South Africa are considering possibilities for joint development of oil and gas-bearing fields, South African Minister of International Relations and Cooperation Maite Nkoana-Mashabane said, summing up the results of Monday’s talks with her Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov.
“We plan to develop interaction in the energy sphere. The talk is about how to organize joint oil and gas production,” Nkoana-Mashabane said. The issue will be on the agenda of her talks with Russian Minister of Natural Resources Sergei Donskoi.
In turn, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that Russia would help South Africa create its own nuclear power industry and develop cooperation in the field of renewable energy sources.
“We have interesting aircraft-building projects. A regional service centre for Russian-made helicopters opened in Johannesburg in March this year. The two sides are also planning joint production of light, multi-purpose helicopters,” Lavrov said.
