Reiterating that BP stands by its Russian
investments, Dudley said the sanctions related to Rosneft CEO
Igor Sechin's private matters.
"I am able to meet with him to solve issues related to the
Rosneft oil company," Dudley was quoted as saying in a
Russian-language report by Interfax. But he added: "It does not
affect our cooperation with the company itself."
BP holds a 19.75 percent stake in Rosneft.
