Russia and Belarus close to solving gas price dispute - minister

MINSK, Nov 30 (Reuters) - Russia and Belarus are close to solving a dispute over gas prices, Belarussian Energy Minister Vladimir Potupchik told reporters on Wednesday.

The long-term allies have been at odds since the start of the year over how much Minsk should be paying Russia’s Gazprom for gas supplies following a slump in global energy prices.

Potupchik said officials from the two countries would hold talks on gas supplies this week.

“We are close to a resolution,” he said. (Reporting by Andrey Makhovsky; Writing by Andrew Osborn; Editing by Alexander Winning)
