MOSCOW, September 9. /TASS/. The meeting between Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak and European Commission’s Vice-President for Energy Union Maros Sefcovic is preliminarily scheduled for October, Novak said Friday.
"The meeting with Maros Sefcovic has been preliminarily scheduled for October 14. Russia’s Energy Ministry has received respective confirmations from the ambassador of Maros Sefcovic’s secretariat and the EU ambassador. The talks will mainly focus on the energy dialogue between Russia and the EU and infrastructure for Russian gas supplies to Europe," he said.
Regular trilateral consultations between Russia, the European Union and Ukraine on gas supplies to Ukraine and Russia's gas transit to Europe started in May 2014 after Russia cancelled Ukraine’s gas discount. In the summer of 2014, Gazprom shifted to prepayment supplies regime. In the autumn of 2015, Russia kept the term of quarterly gas price setting in the so-called ‘winter package’, which expired on March 31. After that, the European Commission recommended Kiev and Moscow to hold consultations on natural gas supplies in the nearest future, though no particular date has been offered yet.
