    Gazprom stated that chief executives of the Russian and Serbian state-run energy companies met in St. Petersburg to discuss natural gas supplies to Europe.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Chief executives of the Russian and Serbian state-run energy companies, Gazprom and Srbijagas, met in St. Petersburg to discuss natural gas supplies to Europe, Gazprom said in a statement Wednesday.

    "The sides discussed urgent issues and outlooks for future bilateral cooperation on energy. They discussed Russian gas supplies to Serbia and other European countries in the medium- and long-term, as well as cooperation in the area of underground gas storage on the republic’s territory," Gazprom said.

    The meeting of Gazprom’s Alexei Miller and Srbijagas’ Dusan Bajatovic took place on the margins of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum, which officially kicks off on Thursday.

    In 2014, the Russian energy giant supplied Serbia with 1.5 billion cubic meters of gas under a 10-year deal with Belgrade that was signed in 2013.

    Russia and Serbia run a joint underground gas storage facility on Serbian soil – one of the largest in southeastern Europe, according to Gazprom.
