KIEV — Ukraine is seeking to "overcome disagreements" with Russia and hopes to complete talks on natural gas price agreements soon, said National Defense and Security Council Secretary Andriy Klyuev.
Klyuev met with Sergei Naryshkin, speaker of Russia's lower house of parliament, Monday in Kiev. "I expect both sides will work out an optimal, economically grounded and fair gas price formula for Ukraine," Klyuev said.
"Talks are dynamic," Naryshkin said Monday after meeting Ukraine's Prime Minister Mykola Azarov. "Russia's Energy Ministry submitted a new draft agreement to the Ukrainian side," he said without providing details.
