MOSCOW, December 14 (Itar-Tass) — Russia and Poland do not have problems for cooperation in various spheres of energy, Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said following talks with his Polish counterpart Radoslaw Sikorski on Wednesday.
“If our companies are interested in shale gas, I am convinced this mutual interest quite may be implemented,” Lavrov said. He highlighted yearning for stable gas supplies under the projects, which Russia implements currently with several European companies.
“First of all I mean the North Stream and the South Stream. We also have an agreement with Belarus on that country’s gas transporting system,” he continued. “It is aimed at avoiding the problems which we faced in the past regarding positions of transit countries.”
The minister expressed confidence that “the amount of supplies will be growing,” and added that the companies are agreeing on prices “with the use of the formula which is used now.”
“This is an international practice,” he added.
Lavrov said that “wider cooperation between Russia and the European Union in the energy sector will be developing.” This topic will be on the agenda of the upcoming Russia-EU summit in Brussels, he added.
