"It was important for the German and French leaders not just to hear assurances from the Russian leadership but also to learn of its concrete steps towards stepping up the production and export of energy resources," Prikhodko noted. He explained that the energy theme emerged at the troika meeting in discussing the Middle East and Iraq situation, which affects the sustained and continuous shipments of oil to the world market. "In this connection, the Russian president reminded his colleagues that Russia has never violated its obligations in the supply of gas and holds the same position in oil supplies," the presidential aide said. As regards international problems in discussion in Sochi, Prikhodko said that, except Iraq and the Middle East, the three leaders spoke of the Nagorny Karabakh settlement, the situation in Georgia and Transdniestria. The issue of the Russian-speaking population in Latvia and Estonia was also raised at the talks, Prikhodko said.

After the talks with FRG Federal Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder and French President Jacques Chirac, Russian President Vladimir Putin accompanied the high guests to the airport.
