MOSCOW, July 24. /TASS/. Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said on Thursday that deliveries of Russian natural gas to China did not mean a change in policy priorities and were not intended to devalue the country’s gas cooperation with Europe.
"It’s not a shift in emphasis and it’s not a change in cooperation vectors. It’s just another vector of cooperation." Medvedev said in an interview with Slovenia's national broadcaster RTV Slovenija. "The fact that we will supply gas to China in no way devalues our cooperation with Europe," he said.
Medvedev stressed that the European gas market was of "key importance" for Russia, recalling that gas cooperation between Russia and Europe dated back many decades.
"Russia has not violated its obligations and would like to further deliver large volumes of gas to Europe," he said, noting however that: "It does not mean that we will not supply gas to other places.".
