Baku-APA. Russian President Vladimir Putin has arrived in Brussels to attend the EU-Russia summit. He was welcomed by President of the European Council Herman Van Rompuy and President of the European Commission Jose Manuel Barroso, APA reports quoting Xinhua.

Putin is in Brussels for a summit with European Union leaders that is expected to focus on energy disputes and the Syrian crisis. For Putin, the main issue in Friday’s talks is EU energy market regulations.

The EU says they are intended to boost competition, but Moscow has described them as discriminatory against Russia’s state-controlled gas company, Gazprom.

Syria is expected to dominate the discussion of international issues.
