Trade Talks Bring Juppe To Moscow

French Prime Minister Alain Juppe arrived in Moscow on Wednesday to talk economics and trade with his Russian counterpart and to meet the new Communist parliament speaker. Juppe, on his first trip to Russia since he became prime minister in May, and Prime Minister Viktor Chernomyrdin plan to open the first session of their joint economic commission Thursday. The commission is similar to one co-chaired by Chernomyrdin and U.S. Vice President Al Gore. During the three-day visit, they expect to reach agreements on the environment and the power industry, as well as to sign several contracts, Itar-Tass said. They will also discuss relations between the European Union and Russia, NATO expansion and cooperation between G-7 and Russia, the report said. French Defense Minister Charles Millon, meanwhile, arrives Wednesday in Ukraine for an official visit.
