Sub Rescue Deal

Deputy Prime Minister Ilya Klebanov on Tuesday ordered officials to sign an agreement within the next few days on retrieving the remains of 118 sailors from the sunken submarine Kursk.

Russia’s military design agency Rubin had planned to sign an agreement with Norway’s Stolt Offshore company last week, but the deal was put off because the sides couldn’t agree on payment terms, according to Rubin chief Igor Spassky.

Klebanov called a meeting of government officials on Tuesday to discuss the issue, and ordered Rubin to conclude an agreement within days, Interfax reported, citing Klebanov’s office.
