    Russia's first deputy energy minister said China could be interested in buying into oil giant Rosneft.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Chinese investors are interested in purchasing shares in the Russian oil giant Rosneft, Russian First Deputy Energy Minister Alexei Teksler said.

    “I think so,” Teksler told RIA Novosti in an interview when asked if China would be interested in buying into the company.

    Rosneft should privatize 19.5 percent of its state shares by the end of 2016, according to Russia’s privatization plan.
