Prime Minister Vladimir Putin said the thought of the President in proposing, as part of aid from Russia to Japan, as Japanese companies involved in the exploitation of gas deposits in Siberia. It also said it was possible to accelerate the exploitation of the pipeline East Siberia - Pacific Ocean, which would open in 2012 instead of 2014.
