Belarus wants gas price, as in Smolensk region of the Russian Federation

Belarus expects that the price of Russian gas for the republic will be at the price level in the Smolensk region of the Russian Federation. It is reported by Interfax-Ukraine.

“Our position is the price of the closest region of Russia to us – Smolensk region, plus transportation costs”, Prime Minister of Belarus Syarhey Rumas told reporters on Friday in Minsk.

Belarus and Russia have not yet agreed on 16 issues on integration roadmaps, Rumas said.

“I will tell you this, now, in preparation for the meeting (with Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev), I calculated that today we have 16 uncoordinated issues on all the roadmaps”, Rumas told reporters.

He stressed that issues of gas prices and the so-called “customs clearance” are included in the circle of uncoordinated issues.
