Russia's Putin met Rosneft, Sistema heads, hopes for an agreement

XIAMEN, China, Sept 5 (Reuters) - Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Tuesday that he had met the heads of industrial conglomerate Sistema and the Kremlin-controlled energy company Rosneft, expressing hope that both could reach an out-of-court settlement.

“I have listened to the position of both (heads)... I‘m counting on them to reach a peaceful agreement,” Putin told reporters.

A Russian court ruled Aug. 23 that Sistema should pay more than 136 billion roubles ($2.35 billion) to Rosneft in a dispute over oil producer Bashneft.
