MOSCOW, October 4 (Itar-Tass) —— Gazprom CEO Alexei Miller and Ukrainian Energy and Mining Minister Yuri Boiko held a new round of gas negotiations on Tuesday, Gazprom said.
They noted the efficiency of the dialog aimed at the fulfillment of the earlier agreements, it noted.
The previous round took place on September 30.
Gazprom and Neftegaz Ukrainy signed two contracts on gas supply to Ukraine in 2009-2019 and on gas transit to Europe across Ukraine in 2009-2019 on January 19, 2009. Gazprom and Neftegaz signed additions to the contracts on April 21, 2010.
Miller said that Gazprom was prepared to search for compromises at the gas negotiations with Ukraine. “The government holds the controlling stake in Gazprom, and we are implementing intergovernmental agreements. It is necessary to bring them to the logical end. Currently, Gazprom and Neftegaz operate under the gas delivery and transit contracts for the period until 2019. Our work is strictly based on these contracts, and there are no other documents or agreements at present. Gazprom is open to the dialog and the search for compromises,” Miller said.
