Kazakh Presidential Press Spokesperson Ruslan Jeldibay made a written statement regarding the Russia-Kazakhstan-Uzbekistan Tripartite Gas Union, which came to the agenda during Tokayev’s visit to Moscow yesterday.
Stating that the issue came to the fore in the meetings of Kazakh and Russian leaders in the Kremlin, Jeldibay emphasized that the union aims to provide coordination in the transit of Russian gas through Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan.
“Kazakhstan President Tokayev and Russian President Vladimir Putin believe that detailed negotiations should be conducted with the participation of experts from three countries in order to find a rational solution to this issue, taking into account the interests of all parties involved,” Jeldibay said.
Tokayev met with Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin within the scope of his Moscow visit and said, “In order to reach the desired result and agreement, I must first have a good grasp on this issue. Not to mention our experts. Why not?” he said.
