Russia's next step in cooperation with China is a similar agreement on gas supplies along the western route

The next step of Russia in cooperation with China after the signing of a contract for the supply of gas from the Far Eastern fields is the possible conclusion of a similar agreement on the western route, that is, on the fields of Western Siberia. This was announced yesterday by Russian President Vladimir Putin during a conversation with foreign journalists at the Constantine Palace.

"The so-called western route is the resources of Western Siberia. Perhaps this project will be cheaper. Interaction mechanisms will already be worked out. Therefore, the second project can be implemented even faster than the eastern one. But this, of course, is related to the needs of the customer," Putin said ...

He stressed that Russia's "step forward" in relation to China is associated not only with the gas contract. However, the president agrees that the $ 400 billion deal could be called "landmark." The Russian leader compared it to the "gas for pipes" agreement signed between the USSR and the FRG.

"For us, this is an opportunity to enter the APR (Asia-Pacific region - ed.) Market, our main consumer. This contract gives us the opportunity to make economically feasible the development of gasification of the entire Far East and Western Siberia. This is the most important thing for us in the contract", - explained the head of state.
