    NOVO-OGAREVO, January 20th, 2004 (RIA Novosti correspondent) - Vladimir Putin has suggested that the dialogue with the World Bank on the G-8's agenda in view of Russia's presidency in this organisation due in 2006 be expanded.

    At his meeting with World Bank President James Wolfensohn in his country residence on Tuesday, Vladimir Putin said, "Consideri ng the World Bank's involvement in the solution of many economic issues, it would be useful to expand the dialogue with the bank," said the president. In particular, he noted this is true for those areas and socio-economic problems that are on the agenda of the G-8 and arouse particular interest.

    The World Bank Chairman noted in turn that he was delighted to hear the proposal to co-operate. I hope we will expand our dialogue in the next two years, he said.
