Medvdev orders Russian Energy Ministry to negotiate LNG exports with Pakistan

Moscow, Oct 6 (UNI) Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has ordered the Energy Ministry to negotiate a three-year deal with Pakistan on liquefied natural gas exports (LNG).
The order authorises talks "with Pakistan with participation of the Russian Foreign Ministry and the signing of an agreement upon reaching consensus," RIA news agency reported.
The agreement will be valid for three years and extend automatically for another three years after the initial period expires.

Earlier this year, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that the trade turnover between Russia and Pakistan has slightly increased and that the two countries have great potential for economic cooperation.


In June, this year, Sergei Chemezov, CEO of Russia's state military equipment manufacturer Rostec said that the construction of the North-South gas pipeline in Pakistan is shifted for not less than a year over the disagreements between the parties on the tariff for gas pumping.
The intergovernmental agreement on the gas pipeline construction was signed by Russia and Pakistan in 2015. The project is implemented by RT-Global Resources, part of Rostec corporation.
