    RIYADH (Sputnik) – Russian cooperation with Saudi Arabia in electricity industry may include creation of a joint venture and equipment supplies, Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak said on Sunday.

    “Cooperation in electricity industry implies various aspects: creation of ventures, equipment supplies, exchange of technologies and training of specialists,” Novak told RIA Novosti.

    Earlier on Sunday, Novak said that Russia positively assessed prospects of cooperation with Saudi Arabia in the nuclear sphere as well as on building a tanker fleet.
