MINSK, September 23 (Itar-Tass) —— Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko has offered Gazprom to acquire stock of other Belarusian plants in addition to Beltransgaz.
“I do not rule out the acquisition of stakes in Beltransgaz and, possibility, in other plants of interest to Gazprom if Gazprom agrees to the terms Belarus sets,” he told Gazprom CEO Alexei Miller on Friday.
“Everyone is accustomed to our problem with Gazprom, that is the future gas price. However, I know that a long time ago, before you took your position in Gazprom, there were negotiations on broader cooperation and interesting projects were planned,” he told Miller. He also said he wished to discuss those projects.
“I know that you are not into politics, but the question [of the Russian gas price for Belarus] becomes political when it is delayed for too long,” Lukashenko said.
He said he was prepared for rapid solutions and recalled discussing the subject with Prime Minister Vladimir Putin and President Dmitry Medvedev in Sochi. “I was satisfied with that meeting very much. I think we can continue our work in this spirit,” he said.
In turn, Miller said that the sides had prepared a set of documents concerning Russian gas deliveries to Belarus from 2012 and the selling of 50% in Beltransgaz to Gazprom.
“We have really prepared an important set of documents, among them a new gas contract with Belarus, which will be valid from January 1, 2012, and which is based on an intergovernmental agreement on the principles of pricing and tariff making, and the agreement on selling 50% in Beltransgaz,” he said.
