The two-day 2009 Russia-EU summit held in the Russian far-eastern city of Khabarovsk has achieved satisfactory outcomes, both sides said at a press conference Friday.
A broad range of issues were discussed at the talks, such as the ongoing financial crisis, Russia’s proposals on the European energy charter, security issues and major international problems including the situation in the Middle East.
The two sides discussed ways of tackling the ongoing global financial crisis and acknowledged the accomplishments achieved at the G20 London Summit. They agreed to fully implement the consensus reached at the summit.
On Rusussia’s recent proposals on a new global energy charter in replacement of the existing European energy charter, both sides agreed to hold further consultations to revise the current one while taking into account some of Russia’s ideas.
On the formation of a new architecture for European security, both sides agreed to have more talks in the near future.
