UFA, July 9. /TASS/. Russia and China should study a possibility of building a gas pipeline across Mongolia, Mongolian President Tsakhiagiin Elbegdorj said on Thursday.
The Mongolian president made this statement on building a gas pipeline from Russia to China across Mongolia at a meeting of the BRICS heads of state in the Russian Urals city of Ufa.
This issue can be discussed at a trilateral meeting of the Russian, Chinese and Mongolian leaders in Beijing in September this year devoted to the celebration of the end of World War Two, Mongolia’s president said.
The project of building a gas pipeline across Mongolia is a priority area of cooperation between the three countries, the Mongolian president said.
According to media reports, Russia and China are planning to build a gas pipeline system via the western and eastern routes.
The western route, called Power of Siberia-2, is intended to run across the highly mountainous area of the Altai region in Siberia to China. However, a previous project proposed laying a gas pipeline to China across Mongolia.
This project envisaged considerably smaller expenses as a gas pipeline was intended to run across the territory with infrastructure prepared for the pipeline’s construction.
Nevertheless, this project came to a halt due to certain disagreements that existed between Mongolia and China at that time.
