MOSCOW, May 23. /TASS/. Tripartite talks on gas between Russia, the European Union and Ukraine are due to be held until June 30, Russia's Energy Minister Alexander Novak told reporters on Saturday.
"Certainly, we must hold them by June 30 as we should take a decision for the third quarter," Novak said adding that the negotiations were unlikely to be held till June.
Earlier, the meeting had been expected to take place in April or May.
In April Novak told reporters that a tripartite meeting on gas was not a necessity in the foreseeable future.
Tripartite talks on gas at the level of energy ministers, which were scheduled for April 14 in Berlin, were postponed for a later date.
