Russian Premier Receives U.S. Secretary Of Energy

Spencer Abraham, US Secretary of Energy, is in Moscow on a routine visit. Russia's Prime Minister Mikhail Kasyanov received him today, reports Tatyana Razbash, prime-ministerial press spokesperson. The negotiators highlighted spectacular progress of bilateral partnership in all spheres, power industry being no exception--suffice it to mention the implementation taking start of an ambitious joint project for the Caspian mainline consortium. Messrs. Kasyanov and Abraham pointed out active investment by leading US-based companies in Russian oil- and gasfield development--in particular, $12 billion invested for now in project Sakhalin 1. Apart from power industrial partnership, also under discussion was Russian-US teamwork to salvage nuclear submarine reactors.

On December 10, 1948 the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly, its thirty articles enshrining basic and fundamental rights guaranteeing dignity of the human person and equality for all, regardless of race, color, creed or gender. A pipe dream?
