BAKU. Oct 27 (Interfax) - The State Oil Company of the Azerbaijan Republic (SOCAR) is mulling the proposal of Rosneft to participate in the Vostok Oil project, just as SOCAR considers all proposals, SOCAR president Rovshan Najaf told reporters on the sidelines of the XV Verona Eurasian Economic Forum in Baku.

"Yes, just like all proposals," Najaf said in response to the related question.

Rosneft CEO Igor Sechin, when speaking at the forum, had earlier invited an Azerbaijani company to participate in the Vostok Oil project in the north of the Krasnoyarsk Territory.

"We would be glad to see our friends, including our colleagues from the SOCAR, among the participants in the project," Sechin said.
