Russian President Dmitry Medvedev and German Chancellor Angela Merkel will discuss bilateral trade, economic, cultural and humanitarian ties, as well as international affairs, a Russian presidential aide said on Tuesday.
Medvedev and Merkel will meet on July 14-15 in Yekaterinburg as part of Russian-German interstate consultations.
"Our priorities include European security, Russia-EU and Russia-NATO cooperation, and the implementation of G-8 and G-20 decisions," Sergei Prikhodko said.
On Thursday, Medvedev and Merkel are to meet with representatives of Russian and German business circles.
Prikhodko said as a result of the interstate consultations, Russia and Germany will sign more than 10 documents, including a memorandum on a managerial personnel training program, a statement of intent on cooperation in physical education and sport, an agreement on cooperation between the countries' public health ministries, and a memorandum of understanding between the Skolkovo foundation and Siemens AG.
