BRATISLAVA, April 24. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine’s parliament-appointed Minister of Energy and Coal Industry Yuriy Prodan sees no need in three-party ministerial talks between his country, Russia and the European Union until the differences between Russian and Ukrainian economic entities are settled.
“However we think that before meeting to discuss problems our companies Gazprom [of Russia] and Naftogaz [of Ukraine] should reach an agreement on the gas price and supplies,” he noted. “So, it is too early to organize a ministerial meeting when there is no agreement between the companies.”
Earlier on Thursday, a representative of the press service of the European Commissioner for Energy said that Gunter Oettinger had invited Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak and Ukraine’s parliament-appointed Minister of Energy Yuriy Prodan to a first meeting of the three-party consultations. However, he added, the date and venue had not yet been agreed.
