MOSCOW, July 1 (Itar-Tass) - Russian President Vladimir Putin suggests finding new applications to natural gas.
"I think that the development of new applications to natural gas is a vital area of cooperation,” Putin said in his speech at the second GAS Exporting Countries Forum (GECF) on Monday.
Putin also told the forum that growing pressure on gas exporting countries was a serious challenge.
"This natural resource is strengthening its positions on the global market. However, the pressure on gas exporters is growing. I regard it as a serious challenge to all of us,” the Russian president said.
