GORKI, December 10. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said on Tuesday that the third energy package was creating tensions both inside the European Union and in its relations with Russia.

“Any documents of the national or European law should create benefits rather than problems,” Medvedev told a news conference after his talks with Slovenian Prime Minister Alenka Bratusek.

“Unfortunately, the third energy package (despite having noble goals) is creating tensions inside the European Union and naturally in relations between Russia and separate European Union states,” Medvedev went on to say. He added that hopes for fair energy and economic relations had not come true.

“We have asked our partners many times to analyze the legal and economic balance of the principles contained in the energy package,” Medvedev said.

“The ball is in the European Union’s court and we are expecting a reply from our European partners to our initiatives,” the Russian prime minister went on to say.

Medvedev said that on December 3, a European commissioner suggested revising the inter-governmental agreements which Russia had concluded with several EU states, including Austria, Bulgaria, Slovenia and Greece, in order to amend them with account taken of the third energy package.
