As it has become known, a plan on 26 projects worth 4 bln euro was signed last week at a session of the Russian/Austrian intergovernmental commission in Moscow.
The intergovernmental commission, chaired by the Vice Chancellor of Austria, Reinhold Mitterlehner, and the Russian Deputy Prime Minister, Dmitry Kozak, resulted in a signed plan for 26 joint projects.
According to RIA Novosti, the Russian ambassador to Vienna, Dmitry Lyubinsky, said that the event was a considerable step forward, despite the difficulties which still exist in Russia’s relationship with the European Union.
The intergovernmental commission hadn’t assembled for 5 years, for various reasons.
The approved plan includes joint work on construction of the “Northern Stream 2” pipeline and a broad railway track to Vienna.
