VILNIUS, November 8 (Itar-Tass) —— Lithuania has exhausted opportunities to reach agreement with Gazprom on a “fair price” of Russian gas supplied to the country, Lithuanian Prime Minister Andrius Kubilius said in an interview with national radio on Tuesday.
“We have used every tool we have in an effort to get Gazprom agree to a non-discriminatory price of natural gas supplied to Lithuania,” the premier noted. He believes it is only “the unified stand of the member countries of the European Union” that can change the situation.
Kubilius recalled that back in spring Vilnius turned to the European instances for competition control over what the Lithuanian side regards as unfair pricing in the sphere of Russian natural gas supply. “We have no opportunities to get from Gazprom price benefits through talks,” the premier said.
The Lithuanian side asserts that because of Gazprom’s monopoly position as natural gas supplier, Lithuanian consumers pay an inordinately high price for gas - higher than Latvia, Estonia and many European countries. It is asserted, for instance, that the gas price for Lithuania is 30 percent higher than for German consumers.
