NOVOSIBIRSK, March 7 (Itar-Tass) - Russian Minister of Industry and Trade Denis Manturov said the change of the Venezuelan leadership will not influence Russian-Venezuelan accords and contracts.
"We've signed contracts with a state; so the Venezuelan partners are under federal commitments. I do not feel any apprehension," Manturov said.
He underlined that Russia mourned President Hugo Chavez who had done much for his country. "We're hoping we'll keep productive and warm relations with this country, given the leadership change. We do not see any misgivings," the minister said.
Manturov, a co-chairman of the bilateral intergovernmental commission, is in the delegation which will represent Russia at the funeral of Hugo Chavez.
