MOSCOW, Oct. 29 (Xinhua) -- The Russian and Polish prime ministers, Vladimir Putin and Donald Tusk, both spoke highly of the gas cooperation agreements signed in Warsaw on Friday, the Itar-Tass news agency reported.

During their phone conversation on Friday, Putin and Tusk noted that the agreements on gas industry cooperation were an example of the new quality of the bilateral relations. They agreed to continue their work in this positive dynamic.

The Russian-Polish gas supply agreements were important for the entire European energy sector, Putin said.

"This is an important result not only bilaterally but also for the entire European energy sector, considering that the contracts on pumping our gas and its transit to European consumers through Polish territory have been extended for 35 years. This is a serious stabilizing measure," the prime minister said.

Russia and Poland agreed to extend the gas transit deal until 2045.
