Issues of global energy security will be foremost on the agenda of the 2006 G8 summit in St. Petersburg
Issues of global energy security will be foremost on the agenda of the 2006 G8 summit in St. Petersburg, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Alexander Yakovenko said Monday. "International energy security will be one of the priorities of Russian foreign policy, which implies providing regular supplies of all kinds of fuels to people all over the world at reasonable prices," the minister said during Russian Oil and Natural Gas Week events. During Russia's tenure as president of the club of the world's leading industrialized nations, it plans to formulate ways to stabilize fuel supplies, increase investment in the energy sector and guarantee environmental protection. The Russian diplomat said global energy supplies must have minimal impact on the environment. He added that G8 countries did not always share similar interests, which was why it was necessary to seek an optimal balance of interaction in the energy sector along with a sensible pricing policy. Yakovenko stressed that the outcome of the upcoming summit would play a significant role in further cooperation between the leading players on the world energy market.
