GORKI, May 13. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev stated that he instructed Deputy Prime Minister Alexander Khloponin to supervise the newly-formed Ministry of North Caucasus Affairs.
At a meeting with head of this ministry Lev Kuznetsov late on Monday evening the prime minister recalled talks about his future work had been conducted back in the previous week. “Then we discussed tasks of the newly-established ministry. The region is difficult and requires constant attention,” Medvedev noted.
He told the new minister that presently Russian authorities believe that “the key to settlement of regional problems is in its socio-economic development.” “Deputy Prime Minister Alexander Khloponin has worked on this without the ministry and he has done much,” Medvedev noted.
