MINSK, June 13. /TASS/. Belarus is interested in developing oil and gas fields in Russia, Deputy Prime Minister of Belarus Vladimir Semashko said on Tuesday.
"We are interested in a field to be offered by the Russian party for development and production of oil and gas," the official said, cited by BelTA news agency.
Belorusneft oil company won a tender in Russia and holds a small field, Semashko said. "It is producing oil there - not much, about 110,000 tonnes, but the precedent takes place," he added.
