MOSCOW, April 26. /TASS/. Energy cooperation is among top-priority spheres for Russia and Uzbekistan, Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Tuesday after talks with his visiting Uzbekistani counterpart Islam Karimov.
"Energy is a priority sphere of cooperation. Russia’s leading companies are successfully operating in Uzbekistan," the Russian leader said. Thus, in his words, Russia’s oil major Lukoil, along with its Uzbek partners, is developing unique fields in the Bukhara region and has already invested $3.6 billion into these projects.
"Aggregate investment is planned at a level of $12 billion," Putin stressed.
He also dwelled on a number of other joint projects in Uzbekistan, including in the spheres of heat and hydro power engineering and in industrial cooperation.
