Serbian President hopes that the Russian President will have a better understanding of Serbia’s position on the gas price and the amounts of supply
MOSCOW, November 13. /TASS/. Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic plans to discuss the gas price and increased supplies with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Vucic said in an exclusive interview with the YouTube channel SolovyevLive on Saturday.
“This time we will have plenty of practical issues to touch upon. In addition to political issues, I can say something, and I also leave something for the one-on-one conversation. I would say that the top issue here, in Serbia is gas,” Vici said.
“I am convinced that we will find a solution to three things related to gas. They are the price of gas and its amount, as we need more and more gas. [We] are spending more and more. If we used to spend 1.1 billion cubic meters of gas, now we use 2.7 [bln]. We should reach an agreement on increased gas supplies, as our economy is the fastest-growing in Europe,” he said.
Vucic said that Putin had always shown an understanding of Serbia’s dire circumstances.
“I hope that this time he will also understand us in regard to the gas price and amounts of supply,” he added.
On October 7, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Yuri Borisov said at a meeting of the Russian-Serbian intergovernmental committee that he hoped a long-term contract for Russian gas supplies to Serbia would be inked by the end of 2021.
