Russia and Canada project economic, scientific-technical cooperation

Russia and Canada have prepared a set of joint projects, which will soon be discussed by a joint intergovernmental commission for economic and scientific-technical cooperation, Prime Minister Mikhail Kasyanov said at a Friday meeting with Canadian Governor General Adrienne Clarkson.

"I'm glad to say that your state visit provides a strong incentive for the development of cooperation in many other areas, such as education, culture, science and sport," the Russian prime minister said.

Kasyanov also said that the Russian leadership is satisfied with how Russian-Canadian relations are developing.

In turn, Clarkson assured the Russian premier of the Canadians' friendly feelings towards Russia. The G8 idea of global partnership can play a special role in the strengthening of relations between the two countries, she said.

We in Canada see this idea as extremely important and serious, she said.

In the opinion of the Canadian governor general, the two countries' interaction in handling problems of the North and environmental problems should particularly been seen from the point of view of global partnership.

We are northern countries united by the Arctic Ocean and have a common geography, she continued.

Clarkson also said that representatives of the peoples of the North are in the Canadian delegation.

On Saturday the delegation headed by the Canadian governor general will go to Salekhard in Russia's North and meet with representatives of the Nenets people.
