    Greece has offered Russia to set up a joint venture to extract natural resources, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich said Saturday.

    THESSALONIKI (Sputnik) – Dvorkovich said Russian gas producer Gazprom had been negotiating with Greek firms, including the Poseidon company, with which it shares a long history of cooperation.

    "There have been projects offered by our Greek colleagues, such as a joint venture on extracting natural resources in the Greek territory," Dvorkovich told reporters during his visit to Greece.

    "They have been proposed at the highest level, including by the Greek prime minister. The talks are being conducted on the matter… An approval of the Greek authorities is needed though," he added.
