Text size Aa Aa

The Russian President Dmitry Medvedev has arrived in Paris for a three day state visit.

France has been keen to improve ties with Moscow and President Nicolas Sarkozy will be seeking support for tough sanctions against Iran.

Talks on energy tie-ups and weapons will also be amongst the priorities; the first big arms sale by a NATO country to Russia.

Further agreements on energy cooperation under which Russian gas export monopoly Gazprom will increase its exports to France will be signed during the visit.
