Colombia is interested in applying the experience amassed by the Russian companies in the development of the oil deposits at sea and in the building of natural gas pipelines," Colombian Foreign Minister Guillermo Fernandez de Soto declared in Moscow. According to the minister, he met Russian business leaders in Moscow to discuss prospects for cooperation between the two countries in the oil and natural gas sphere.
At present, Colombia and Venezuela are considering a major project to build a natural gas pipeline from the north of Colombia to Central America. In this connection, the Colombian minister said, "great possibilities offer themselves for cooperation with the Russian companies which have a wealth of experience in this sphere."

The Colombian minister met Russian Health Minister Yuri Shevchenko who is co-chairman of the Russian-Colombian intergovernmental commission for trade, economic, scientific and technical cooperation. The ministers agreed that the next meeting of this commission will be held not later than in January 2002. Fernandez de Soto said the agenda of the forthcoming meeting will be discussed by experts within the next few weeks.
The Colombian foreign minister noted, "interaction between Russia and Colombia in the military-technical sphere has been intensively developing lately." He said the Colombian government had recently decided to purchase Russian helicopters. He expressed the hope that the agreement on cooperation in this field between the two countries will continue to be filled with specific substance in the coming months.
