The visit

As part of the visit, a working meeting took place in Paris between Alexey Miller and Jean-Pierre Jouyet, Chief of Staff of the President of France.

It was pointed out that against the declining domestic production in Europe, the demand for gas imports would grow. Russia, as a reliable energy supplier to the European economy, will be able to secure gas export to the extent required.
