Russia has kept the gas price for Serbia at $270 for the next six months, as Report informs, Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic said this on Thursday following the results of the negotiations in Sochi with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
“Of course, he (Putin) understands how important for us is the topic of gas supplies, its quantity and flexibility. President Putin showed exceptional friendliness to Serbia: we managed to get gas for an incredible price of 270 dollars for the next six months. So, the price for us does not change, it remains absolutely the same. We agreed to increase the amount of gas for the six months, as well as the flexibility [of supplies], which I especially asked President Putin for,” Vucic said live on TV Pink from Sochi.
According to Vucic, the terms of the long-term gas contract provided by Russia to Serbia will be exclusive.
“We also talked about a long-term agreement, some elements remained. Until we sign a long-term agreement, I have no right to talk about these elements. But I can say… that even after these six winter months that are the most difficult and expensive, when the price on the stock exchange is higher than $1,000, and $270 for us, we will have an exceptional price [for gas], increased supplies and, I believe, flexibility,” said Vucic.
