KIEV, October 22 (Itar-Tass) —— Kiev’s main argument at gas talks with Moscow is Ukraine’s role in ensuring reliable and steady gas supplies to Europe, Prime Minister Nikolai Azarov said on the Inter television channel Friday evening.
“Above all Russia needs guarantees of reliable gas traffic to Europe,” he said. In that connection he recalled the events of January 2009, when gas traffic through Ukraine remained stalled for nearly two weeks.
“Now we are persuading our Russian partners we shall be prepared to guarantee the stability and reliability of gas supplies by concluding a special agreement. This is our main argument,” Azarov said.
