Russia comes out for development of international partnership in the Arctic zone, including ecological partnership, the Russian president stressed.
"Russia, with almost a third of its territory situated in areas of Extreme North, is vested with a special responsibility for the Arctic region and ensuring ecological stability there".
“All programs and projects, all the activity in the Arctic region should ensure a balance between the economic activity and environmental protection and take into consideration the interests and age-long culture of the indigenous, scarce population of the North," Putin said.
