BOAO /China/, March 24. /TASS/. Chinese Premier Li Keqiang has pledged to speed up the process of financing for Yamal LNG project, Russia’s Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich told reporters on the sidelines of the Boao Forum for Asia.
"We discussed several issues with the premier of the State Council, including the implementation of the Yamal LNG project and supplies of Russian agricultural products to the Chinese market. The Premier’s response was positive and he said that he would give instructions to speed up the work," - Dvorkovich said after the meeting with Li Keqiang.
