- Russian, Serbian officials to discuss lower gas prices for Belgrade
BELGRADE, January 16 (RIA Novosti) – Serbian Energy Minister Zorana Mihajlovic has reiterated that the price of imported Russian natural gas was too high considering the level of friendly relations between the two countries.
“The price of the Russian gas is an important parameter for Serbia,” Mihajlovic said at a meeting with Russian ambassador Alexander Chepurin on Tuesday.
“Its current price for the Serbian market is too high considering the economic situation in our country and friendly relations between Russia and Serbia,” she said.
Russia is the main supplier of natural gas to Serbia. Russia’s energy giant Gazprom delivered 1.4 billion cubic meters of gas to Serbia in 2011.
Under the current contract between Serbia’s state-run Srbijagas and YugoRosGaz, a Gazprom subsidiary in Serbia, the Balkan republic currently pays $470 per 1,000 cubic meters for Russian gas supplies.
Serbia hopes that Russia could lower the price to $420 per 1,000 cubic meters.
Russia and Serbia signed last October an intergovernmental agreement on deliveries of Russian natural gas to Serbia for the period until 2021.
The framework document envisions annual supplies of 5 billion cubic meters of natural gas to Serbia by Gazprom.
Gazprom and Srbijagas will be signing contracts regulating the price and delivery volumes every year throughout the timeframe of the new agreement.

- moistThe grovelling quisling cult...14:21, 16/01/2013...of the NATO imposed Otpor™ regime in Belgrade can´t have it both way now can they?
Selling out your country in every possible way to get into a union with the very same €USSR & NATO that bombed and raped you for 78 terrible days in -99, will only get you status as confirmed untermenschen by the German €USSR and of course cheap slave labour.
The conditions to that is written on the wall and everyone know´s it:
Recognize the Kosovo & Camp Bondsteel land grab as well as Vojvodina to NATO and their local Albanian drug lords and surrender your independence to IMF (done). Serbs have to wake up,reverse the Soros colour revolution and oust the western imposed puppet regime and start going east finally. That is where your true friends are...

The current contract portfolio of Russian arms exporters is worth about $46 billion. Annual exports total $15 billion, and this will ensure uninterrupted deliveries for the next three years, even in the worst-case scenario. The list of the main buyers of Russian weapons is unlikely to change drastically.
