Medvedev wants to step up technological cooperation with Kazakhstan
Russian President Dmitry Medvedev on Tuesday called for stepping up technological cooperation with Kazakhstan, ITAR-TASS reported. Medvedev proposed reviving Soviet-era supply chains between Russia and Kazakhstan and creating new ones.
“(We should) either restore or create unified technology supply chains,” he said at a Russian–Kazakh cooperation forum.
In particular, Medvedev mentioned the nuclear, space, and nanotechnology industries.
Medvedev also called for agreements on readmission and migration with Kazakhstan to be signed faster.
Additionally, he asked Natural Resources and Environment Minister Yury Trutnev to speed up the drafting of a production sharing agreement for the Khvalynskoye oil field in the Caspian Sea.
The field is jointly developed by Russian oil major Lukoil and Kazakh oil company KazMunaiGaz.
Meanwhile, Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev proposed synchronizing Russian and Kazakh efforts aimed at boosting energy efficiency.
He also proposed creating a joint Russian–Kazakh system to lessen the effects of natural disasters and prevent industrial accidents.
Commenting on other issues, Nazarbayev suggested reviving a Soviet project to divert the flow of Siberian rivers to the desert areas of Central Asia in order to facilitate irrigation. (Source: ITAR-TASS)
