The head of Board NAK “Naftogaz Ukraine” Andrew KOBOLEV hopes that the next round of tripartite talks involving the European Commission, “Naftogaz” and Russian “Gazprom” for gas transit through Ukraine’s GTS will be held in the spring.
“We agreed with the European Commission, togda in March or April will be the next meeting where we will discuss the reaction to their proposal. I hope for a trilateral format,” – said the head of “Naftogaz” following the results of negotiations in Brussels on Monday, January 21.
KOBOLEV said that the Ukrainian side and the European Commission has taken a common position in the negotiations, pointing to the necessity of a new agreement between “Naftogaz” and “Gazprom” to the European energy legislation.
The head of Naftogaz has paid attention that the Russian side has chosen the tactics of delaying negotiations.
