MOSCOW, September 22. /TASS/. Russia’s Economic Development Minister Aleksey Ulyukayev and Germany’s Economy Minister and Vice Chancellor Sigmar Gabriel met on Thursday to discuss biggest projects, including Nord Stream 2, Opal gas pipelines as well as Moscow-Kazan high-speed railroad.
"Several big projects were discussed, particularly Nord Stream 2, Moscow-Kazan high-speed railroad regarding both funding models and participation in their implementation," he said Thursday, adding that "the issue of Opal gas pipeline has also been raised."
According to Ulyukayev, his meeting with Gabriel followed Wednesday’s talks between Vice Chancellor and Russian President Vladimir Putin, and was attended by representatives of German business circles, with issues related to trade turnover, investment cooperation and import substitution being raised.
"The colleagues asked very direct and specific questions concerning the issues of localization, import substitution and tapping markets of third countries," he said, adding that the next meeting with the German side will be held within the joint working group on October 31 in Moscow.
According to Sigmar Gabriel, despite complicated relations between Russia and the European Union several meetings have been held and the sides have pursued economic relations.
