PRESIDENT OF RUSSIA DMITRY MEDVEDEV: Mr Rogge, I'm glad to see you at this Forum, thank you for having come to visit us.

It seems to me that cooperation between the Russian Federation and the IOC is developing very well. In any case, we are very happy. This allows us to successfully address the challenges our country faces, including with regards to preparations for the Olympics.

PRESIDENT OF THE INTERNATIONAL OLYMPIC COMMITTEE JACQUES ROGGE (re-translated): Thank you, Mr President.

Let me congratulate you on the success of your economic forum, which was very well organised.

And of course I would also like to congratulate you on the fact that a significant event such as the Football World Cup will be held in Russia in 2018.
