A. Lukashenko on the supply of hydrocarbons to Belarus: "We will not agree with Russia - we will agree with Iran"
Belarus decided to arrange a kind of demarche from 28 in September, raising the transit tariffs for pumping Russian oil to Europe by 50%. At the moment, new transit rates have not entered into force. If the agreement fails, they will begin their October 11 action.
According to Alexander Lukashenko, “we have to look for other suppliers of hydrocarbons.” According to the news agency BelTA, this supplier the president of Belarus wants to see Iran.
From the statement of Lukashenko:
A somewhat strange expression: “is torn in sources for the supply of oil”, given that Iran is the source of hydrocarbon supplies. Therefore, the question of who exactly “rushing around in the sources” would be worth answering to the head of the Republic of Belarus himself.
Alexander Lukashenko added that the matter, it turns out, is not at all about money, but he did not specify what it was then (quote TASS):
It is expected that negotiations between the Russian Federation and the Republic of Belarus at the level of energy ministries should take place in the near future.
