MOSCOW, December 13. /TASS/. Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin will hold a session of the State Commission on Arctic development on Tuesday. The press service of the deputy prime minister said that the session will focus on state policy in the Arctic in 2016.
The members of the state commission will also discuss developing expedition activities with the aim of implementing comprehensive scientific projects in the Arctic, including in the framework of international cooperation, as well as the plan for 2017.
Rogozin is expected to talk about the upcoming 4th International Arctic Forum "Arctic ― Territory for Dialogue" that will be held on 29-30 March 2017 in Arkhangelsk. The forum will focus on considering strategic issues of developing tourism in the region.
The deputy prime minister repeatedly stated that Russia considers the Arctic zone exclusively as a platform for cooperation and will counter any attempts to fan tensions there. Russia’s choice is a civilized resolution of any disputes on the basis of international law, he said.
"We consider the Arctic as a territory for dialogue and cooperation and intend to decisively counter any attempts to bring any squabbles, intrigues, nervousness and confrontation to the region," Rogozin said earlier at the conference "International Cooperation in the Arctic." He noted that the Russian government has already chosen and plans to implement 150 projects with a total worth of almost 5 trillion rubles in the Arctic by 2030.
