     France is ready to transfer warship technology to Russia, Prime Minister Francois Fillon said on Thursday.

    "We see no problem in transferring technology," Fillon said at a joint news conference with Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin.

    Russia and France are currently in talks on a 2+2 scheme, whereby Russia will buy two French Mistral-class amphibious assault ships and build another two at home.

    Russia's United Shipbuilding Corporation (USC) and France's shipbuilder DCNS in November signed an agreement to form a consortium, which is seen as the most likely winner of a Russian tender to build the two ships

    Fillon said he was sure that the talks would be completed.
