Better later than never.The Belarus limbo

The intensive talks of Belarus delegation and Gazprom have finished almost at the first chimes of New Year at Kremlin clock tower. Belarus achieved knocking down extra $5 off the price for Russia's natural gas, having negotiated the final price of $100 per 1,000 m3. The delegation inked papers on transit price, Beltransgaz sale terms, and 2007-2011 contract on supply and transit of natural gas. The final stage of the negotiations was blessed by Belarus prime minister Sergey Sidorskiy, who promptly flew to Russia's capital.
