MOSCOW, December 12. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia and Belarus have not finalized oil supplies for 2014, Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak told reporters on Thursday.

“We have not finalized this issue so far,” he said, adding that Belarus insisted on the volume of 23-23.5 million tonnes, while Russia was ready to supply 21 million tonnes.

Russian Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich said positions of Russia and Belarus differed insignificantly, “somewhat by 10%.”

In 2013, Russian oil supplies to Belarus “will most probably total around 20 million tonnes,” he said. “This is slightly higher than our initial position of 18.5 million tonnes, but lower than Belarus’s request for 23.5 million tonnes.”

In 2012, Russia exported to Belarus 21.2 million tonnes of oil. In 2013 it may reduce such supplies by 2.4%.
