SOCHI, February 5 (Itar-Tass) – A G8 summit, which is due in Sochi in 2014, may be held in the highlands and on the seacoast. “The place for a summit was not determined yet, but we have a huge choice, we can hold it at any place,” Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Kozak told reporters on Tuesday.
He believes that if a summit is held on the seacoast, a new hotel Radisson Blue will be convenient for it. Kozak noted that this hotel is under construction to accommodate the International Olympic Committee at the Winter Olympics-2014. Similar hotels, which have conference halls for 1,500 seats, are always built in the Olympic capitals.
The deputy prime minister believes that three compounds, which are also being built in Sochi, can be suitable for a summit in the highlands in Sochi. This is the centres Gornaya Karusel (Mountain Carousel), Roza Khutor and the Gazprom compound.
“There are no estimates, how much a summit will cost,” Kozak remarked. However, he is convinced that “this will be very costly.” “Nothing should be built here, there is everything here for any events on the top level,” the vice-premier underlined
