December 13, 2013

Belarus has asked Russia to supply 23.0–23.5 million tonnes of oil in 2014, while Moscow is offering 21.0 million tonnes, Russia Energy Minister Alexander Novak said on December 12, Prime has reported.

Novak said that the countries are still holding negotiations on the oil supplies. He said on Tuesday that Russia may agree on the amount of oil supplies to Belarus for 2014 by December 15.

Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich said the two countries might sign an agreement on oil supplies by the end of this year, but this will depend on “the whole complex of relations” between Russia and Belarus.
