MINSK, December 11. /ITAR-TASS/. The question of oil deliveries from Kazakhstan to Belarus should be solved with Russia’s participation, Kazakhstan’s ambassador to Belarus, Ergali Bulegenov, told a news conference on Wednesday.
“Kazakhstan is ready to work and trade with any country. But there is a question here given that Belarus and Kazakhstan do not have a common border, and since all the piplelines belong to Russia, the only way to solve these problems is to hold negotiations with Russia," the ambassador said.
He added that Kazakhstan and Belarus would join the Eurasian Economic Union in January 2015. The Kazakh diplomat hopes that it will help both countries to solve the question of oil deliveries.
“This union should function without exceptions and restrictions for all the three states, including transparency of tariffs and access to infrastructure. I hope that the Eurasian Economic Union will give us a chance to solve these problems,” Ergali Bulegenov said.
