Russia and Bulgaria discuss energy cooperation

Sep 19, 2002 02:00 AM

Russian President Vladimir Putin held talks with his Bulgarian counterpart Georgia Purvanov on energy cooperation and bilateral relations in Russia's Black Sea resort of Sochi. Kremlin's deputy chief of staff Sergei Prikhodko said after the talks that the presidents focused their discussion on cooperation in the fuel and energy sector as well as Russia's oil and gas exports to Bulgaria.
They also talked about the processing of Russian oil and gas at Bulgarian enterprises, including those being built with Russian assistance, and their further transportation to other Southern European countries, said Prikhodko. Purvanov showed great interest in expanding cooperation in the electricity sector, he added.

During the meeting, Putin praised Purvanov for having promoted Russian-Bulgarian to a new level. "This can be judged not only from trade turnover, which currently amounts to $ 1 bn and has a great potential for growth, but also from the atmosphere of interstate relations which is noticeably improving," the president was quoted as saying.
Putin also called on Purvanov to spread positive changes in Russian-Bulgarian political relations to the economic and cultural spheres.

Purvanov, who arrived for a three-day working visit, said his talks with Putin would help stabilize political relations between the two countries. He stressed that Bulgaria attached great importance to this visit, which can be seen from the fact that he was accompanied by a 100-member delegation comprising politicians, businessmen and cultural workers.
