Sistema Welcomes Efforts to Resolve Conflict with Rosneft
Russia's Sistema conglomerate said on Thursday it welcomes all efforts to resolve its legal conflict with Rosneft after the oil major filed a new, $2.2 billion, lawsuit seeking damages.
"Sistema welcomes any and all efforts for the settlement of the conflict on conditions that would suit all sides," a spokesman for Sistema said.
The lawsuit relates to the 2009-2014 dividends paid by Rosneft-controlled oil producer Bashneft, formerly owned by Sistema.
