MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Gazprom CEO Alexei Miller hosted Chinese Ambassador to Russia Li Hui at the company’s headquarters in Moscow earlier in the day.
"Key items on the agenda are deliveries of Russian pipeline gas to China. The sides confirmed their full compliance with the schedule of the gas supply project through the eastern route, and discussed the progress of negotiations on the western route delivery project," the company said.
In May, Gazprom said that 71 miles of the pipeline's 3,000 kilometers to stretch across Russian territory were constructed in 2015. Another 250 miles are planned to be completed in 2016. The CNPC plans to build up to 50 kilometers on Chinese territory this year.
