Medvedev hopes that energy cooperation in Asia Pacific will develop on market conditions

PORT MORESBY, November 17. /TASS/. Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev hopes that cooperation in the Asia Pacific region will develop without illegitimate unilateral restrictions.

"We hope that the energy sector in the Asia Pacific will develop on market conditions, without any illegitimate unilateral restrictions," Medvedev said at the summit of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) in Port Moresby. "We are ready to develop relations in the gas sphere with all interested partners," he added.
