MINSK, December 27. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia has expressed its willingness to supply 21 million tonnes of oil to Belarus in 2014 and it does not rule out the possibility of increasing oil supplies to 23 million tonnes, Russian Ambassador to Belarus Aleksandr Surikov told a news conference on Friday.
“The Russian side has now agreed to deliver 21 million tonnes, which is already more than in 2013,” Surikov said, “However, the issue and the possibility of supplying 23 million tonnes will also be considered.”
He noted that Russia’s exports to China had significantly increased lately. At the same time, production volumes had not grown as much.
The ambassador said that Moscow and Minsk had not finalized the volume of Russian oil supplies to Belarus in 2014, though the parties had already agreed on 11.5 million tonnes of oil to be delivered in the first six months of the year.
“Negotiations are not over yet,” Surikov added.
