On the German side participants of the Russian-German Dialogue were: FRG Minister of Foreign Affairs Sigmar Gabriel, German Ambassador to Russia  Freiherr  Rüdiger,   Minister-President of Saxony Stanislaw Tillich, ex- Minister-President of Bavaria Edmund Stoiber. On the Russian side the participants were: Deputy Prime- Minister of Russia Arkadiy Dvorkovich, Special Presidential Envoy for culture cooperation Mikhail Shvidkoy, Deputy Minister of Energy Kirill Molodtsov, Chairman of the State Duma Committee Pavel Zavalniy, member of the Council of the Federation Dmitriy Vasilenko. This year, the main subject for discussion was “ Cooperation in raw materials field on the basis of transparency and trust as the key element of sustainability of Russian-German relations”.
President of Russia Vladimir Putin distinguished exceptional role of the Dialogue and addressed a welcome letter to the delegates and organizers. The head of state spoke highly of the potential of the event and marked that it allows to strengthen state-to-state ties, to discuss perspectives of development of primary commodity markets and implementation of new technologies.
Almost all participants of the Russian-German Dialogue spoke to the fact that at present it is the only working forum, focused on the  revival of  good-neighborly relations between the states and this objective is its core value. Along with this, specific joint scientific and business projects, as well as the prospects of developing partnership between our countries on the whole were discussed.
“Russia is the major power producer for Europe and Germany is a high technology country, the prime buyer of our raw materials,” said co-chairman on the Russian side, rector of Saint Petersburg Mining University Vladimir Litvinenko. “That is why topical issues discussed here are important for both our and German economy”
Chairman of the German organizing committee KlausTöpfer, in his turn, attracted the audience’s attention to “significance of extension of partnership in the field of energy between Russia and FRG”. German ambassador to Russia Freiherr Rüdiger pointed out that “ at present Russia and Germany  have  developed  huge potential in the area of science, economy and business. It is essential to use it to the full to obtain maximum energy efficiency, to provide a background for economic growth and at that to minimize environmental impact”.
The focus point in the Dialogue agenda is “Nord Strean-2”, the construction of which is hindered by a number of EU countries and Brussels. At the same time German and Austrian representatives consider it a strictly economic project and insist on its completion.
A private meeting of  Deputy  Prime-Minister Arkadiy Dvorkovich and FRG Minister of Foreign Affairs Sigmar took place within the frames of the Dialogue where that  issue was discussed. Following the results of the meeting Vice Prime –Minister told the journalists that positions of Russia and Germany are in complete accord.
Both parties are of the opinion that the project must be implemented without  application of EU Third Energy  Package.
“We have concurrence of opinions on 95% of issues under discussion- said Arkadiy Dvorkovich. “We have diverse judgements upon the subject of Crimea. But more important than these disagreements is understanding of our joint responsibility for stability, for peace, growth of mutual trust. This is critically important”.
Sigmar Gabriel also said that political differences, in particular, differing views on what had happened in Crimea should not affect  economic relations. He emphasized that despite all challenges, Russia and FRG must strive to peaceful coexistence ,find a way towards each other.
“It is very important because we are committed to peace and stability”- stated Sigmar Gabriel. “As for power supply to Germany, it must be sustainable and well paid for. Energy commodities must be supplied through transparent  trade format. I am for the construction of “Nord Stream-2” which must function according to legal standards existing in Europe. We must not amend legal rules! Otherwise our partners will be less certain in the perspectives of cooperation with us”
Discussions which were held in Congress-hall  of multipurpose complex “ Gorniy” were devoted to the matter of cooperation between Russia and Germany on a regional level, cooperation in scientific and technological field, waste processing, development of renewable power resources, high technology use of conventional resources.
