MOSCOW, April 12. /TASS/. Russia has not reached an agreement with Belarus on gas price yet, Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich told reporters.
"The talks are held by the companies. We [on the level of the governments -TASS] did not agree on anything," he said.
Earlier, Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak said that consultations on a discount on gas for Belarus would continue. He said that now Belarus pays the lowest price of gas of all countries.
In January, Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich and his Belarusian counterpart Vladimir Semashko held talks but failed to agree on a gas price discount. Reportedly, the talks no longer concerned 10-percent cut but absolute numbers.
Earlier, Belarus’ Deputy Energy Minister Vadim Zakrevskii told reporters that his ministry expects the price of Russian gas to be reduced by more than $10 per 1,000 cubic meters in 2016. Although the current price of $142.37 per 1,000 cubic meters is also acceptable, he added.
In his turn, Belarusian Prime Minister Andrei Kobyakov said that the price of Russian gas for Belarus should be $80 per 1,000 cubic meters instead of current $142.
