Russia calls for more cooperation in coal sector, Xinhua says

China and Russia should enhance cooperation in coal trading, thermal power stations and introduction of technologies, Xinhua news agency cited Ivan Grachov, chairman of the Russian State Duma’s Energy Committee, as saying. There is great potential for increased cooperation between the two sides in the coal sector, the Russian official said in Moscow Thursday, according to the report. Russia’s coal consumption is expected to grow to the same level as that of oil by 2020 and both countries should deepen cooperation, including building thermal power plants in Siberia which can supply power to China, he was quoted as saying.
