ARKHANGELSK, June 09 /ITAR-TASS/. Nobody will reject energy cooperation with Russia on a on his own, Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Monday at a meeting with university students in Arkhangelsk.
When asked whether the complicated international situation could adversely affect international student cooperation, the president said that such cooperation was bound to be continued.
“The situation is always complicated. Can it ever be the other way? Only when they send us humanitarian aid. But once Russia becomes stronger, the situation tends to become complicated due these or those reasons. Nonetheless we shall continue cooperation, and cooperation with us will be continued, moreover, it will be continued more actively. I have no doubt of that,” he said.
According to Putin, the interest to Russia’s reserves in the Arctic is colossal. “It is a planetary interest. It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say that the humankind will be literally forced to use these reserves, and it means we will be working together. We are not rejecting anyone and cooperate actively with all,” the Russian president stressed, adding that the energy market was an open one.
