Belarus Consultations with Russia on Transit of Kazakh Oil

Friday 25 October 2019

NUR-SULTAN / EX ASTANA (TASS) — Minsk will hold consultations with Moscow on the possible transit of oil from Kazakhstan, President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko said following a meeting with President of Kazakhstan Kassym-Jomart Tokayev in Nur-Sultan (ex Astana).

Lukashenko said:

We have agreed that we would hold consultations with the Russian Federation in the near future, since transit, if possible, of Kazakhstani oil will be carried out by pipeline through Russia. I think we will work out a deal.

Lukashenko noted that Belarus pays particular attention to diversifying oil supplies. “Therefore, we are interested in importing this raw material from your country”, he told the president of Kazakhstan.
