“A good example of successful joint actions is the deal of Russia and a number of OPEC nations,” Putin told an energy forum in Moscow.

“We have not only achieved the stabilisation of the oil market, now prospects open up for us to implement promising projects, for technological cooperation because investments have returned (to the oil industry).”
