May 27, 2001 02:00 AM

Algeria and Russia intend to develop bilateral cooperation in all the spheres, said in Algiers Russian Deputy Prime Minister Ilya Klebanov after his meeting with Algerian President Abdelaziz Bouteflika. The Russian vice-premier noted that during the talks with the Algerian president, the sides discussed political, economic and other issues of mutual interest.
At the same time, the two countries, taking into account the results of talks between Algerian Minister of Energy and Mines Chakib Halil and Russian Deputy Minister of Energy Alexei Miller, announced a decision to set up a working group which will be engaged in coordinating bilateral cooperation in the production of oil and gas as well as electricity.

An understanding was also reached to organise meetings of the two ministers on a regular basis. Klebanov arrived in Algiers on a two-day visit at the head of a high-powered Russian delegation. Algeria became the first Arab and African country, as well as the second state after India, with which Russia signed a declaration on strategic partnership last April.
