Butkevicius: no negotiations with Gazprom so far

Feb 05, 2013

VILNIUS - Prime Minister Algirdas Butkevicius says that so far no negotiations with Russian gas giant Gazprom are taking place. PM claims that only working talks and meetings are organized to talk about cheaper gas for Lithuania.

"First of all, the Government is not leading any negotiations with Gazprom. It is someone's "make-up" and this "fiction" seems to be somehow very popular in Lithuania," said Butkevicius in an interview on Tuesday.

"The conservatives would not talk with anyone, therefore today we have the highest gas prices in Europe. I think that such talks have been going on earlier, so it was not the first meeting. There will be more of such conversations and they will take place not because of energy reform or suspension of liquefied natural gas terminal but in order to reach agreement with Grazprom so that Lithuania could purchase cheaper gas," said the PM.

As reported, on Friday, last week, Gazprom's Deputy President Alexander Medvedev came to Lithuania to meet Energy Minister Jaroslav Neverovich.
