Putin calls for new gas transit talks with Minsk

NOVOKUZNETSK, Russia, June 24 (Reuters) - Russia’s Prime Minister Vladimir Putin called on Thursday on Belarus to hold new talks on gas transit after the head of Russia’s Gazprom told him a gas dispute with Minsk had yet to be solved.

Alexei Miller, chief executive of Russia’s gas export monopoly, said Minsk was still demanding payment for gas transit in the amount which was not in line with the existing contract.

Earlier on Thursday, Gazprom said it had restarted gas supply to Belarus in full after Minsk repaid its debt for gas deliveries [ID:nnLDE65N06D.] (Reporting by Gleb Bryanski, writing by Dmitry Zhdannikov, Editing by Lidia Kelly)
