MINSK, October 7 (Itar-Tass) — Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko said on Friday that agreements had been reached with Gazprom on supplies and transit of gas and privatisation of national gas pipeline operator Beltransgaz.
“We are ready to sign an agreement with Russia. (Gazprom head) Miller was here and confirmed our interest in the price of gas, transit and so on,” the president said at a news conference for Russian reporters.
He also reminded the audience that Beltransgaz is assessed at 2.5 billion dollars. At the same time, according to the president Belarus has stipulated that the pipeline must not be closed and gas must be pumped to the West. “We will sell the pipeline, and you will pump gas to the West for example through the Nord Stream (pipeline),” he noted.
Lukashenko added that it had taken Gazprom long to agree. Lukashenko said Belarus was ready to sell 50 percent of shares.
