Belarus and Russia to hold consultations on transit of Kazakh oil
Belarus will hold consultations with Russia on the possible transit of Kazakh oil, President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko said following a meeting with President of Kazakhstan Kassym-Jomart Tokayev in Nur-Sultan.
"We have agreed that we would hold consultations with the Russian Federation in the near future, since transit, if possible, of Kazakh oil will be carried out by pipeline through Russia. I think we will work out a deal," the President of Belarus said, adding that Minsk pays particular attention to diversifying oil supplies.
"Therefore, we are interested in importing this raw material from your country," TASS cited Lukashenko as saying.
