KIEV, October 20. /TASS/. Future agreements between Russia’s Gazprom and Ukraine’s Naftogaz must rule out unilateral decisions, Naftogaz said in a news release following Ukraine’s talks with the European Commission.
“The EU-Ukraine common stance envisages the need for signing agreements between Naftogaz and Gazprom that would be mandatory for both parties and rule out unilateral changes to the conditions by either party,” the news release runs.
“EC and Ukrainian negotiators agreed that the talks should produce an interim agreement that would guarantee gas supplies to Ukraine and the stability of its transit to the EU countries this winter. This agreement is to contain clear guarantees Gazprom will supply the guaranteed amounts of gas to Ukraine and Naftogaz will pay for the supplied gas,” the news release runs.
European Energy Commissioner Gunther Oettinger held a meeting with Ukrainian Energy and Coal Minister Yuriy Prodan on October 20.
On the basis of trilateral talks in Berlin on September 26 Russia, the EU and Ukraine prepared a new package agreement for settling the gas issue, which is now to be agreed by the national governments.
