European Commission hopes for gas talks with Russia and Ukraine
The Vice-President for the Energy Union Maros Sefcovic said that the European Commission wants to re-launch the trilateral format of gas talks involving Ukraine and Russia.
"In the past, this forum has proven its usefulness: it is better for all to sit down together around one table. Russia as an exporter, Ukraine as a transit country and the EU as the main importer share a common interest of predictability. The trilateral format remains the most suitable for discussing gas supplies for the upcoming winter heating season," he noted.
"In this sense, I am also looking forward to meet with Russian authorities in the next weeks," he added.
