The first meeting of the Russian-American intergovernmental workgroup looking into climatic changes will take place in Moscow, in April 2003. This is according to Alexander Bedritsky, the head of Russia's Federal Service for Meteorology and Environmental Monitoring.
Mr. Bedritsky said that, over the past decade, Russia and the US had accumulated positive experiences jointly resolving problems connected to the Earth's changing climate. The joint workgroup and intergovernmental dialogue were established to continue this work, exchanging information, preparing official meetings of the UN framework Convention and other forums concerning climatic changes. The two countries agree to support research into the problem.
