OSLO Feb 7 Lithuania has reached a deal with
Russia's Gazprom, its sole gas supplier, on the
implementation of the European Union's gas market rules, Prime
Minister Algirdas Butkevicius said on Friday, the Baltic news
service BNS reported.
Lithuania and Gazprom have been locked in a dispute over how
to implement EU's market liberalization rules which require
Gazprom to sell its assets in gas transmission business.
"I can confidently say today that negotiations over the
Third Energy Package were completed... and the crucial issues
have been solved," BNS quoted Butkevicius as saying after his
meeting with Gazprom's CEO Alexei Miller in Sochi.
