BEIJING, April 09. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia will not redirect its oil and gas flows due to possible economic sanctions, Russia’s senior government official has said.
“We are ready to fulfil obligations for carrying out projects in the eastern and western directions. Moreover, we can increase supplies, primarily those of gas, following the market’s demand,” Russian Vice-Premier Arkady Dvorkovich said on Wednesday.
“We will give opportunities for the partners concerned to receive energy regardless the political environment. We hope that supplies will increase. No distinctions will be made between the west and the east,” he said.
“Russia and China maintain long-term strategic partnership. It is based on long-term interests and nothing can influence them," Dvorkovich said.
"Talks are continuing on the basis of free market economy terms and mutual benefit. This is precisely what China has been doing and we are grateful to it for this. We are acting likewise,” Dvorkovich said.
He is currently in Beijing on a working visit. On Thursday, April 10, Dvorkovich will take part in the Boao Forum for Asia.
