    European Commission Vice-President in charge of energy policy Maros Sefcovic said Tuesday he hoped to discuss post-2019 Russian gas transit to Europe via Ukraine with Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak next month.

    ROME (Sputnik) – Novak told journalists earlier this month that Sefcovic's visit has been tentatively set for October 14. He said the key topics would include Russian-EU energy dialogue and infrastructure for Russian natural gas deliveries to Europe.

    Sefcovic, speaking at the Future of Energy conference in Rome, said he hoped to discuss with Novak issues that include a trilateral natural gas agreement. He noted that Brussels favors a scenario of signing a gas transit deal between Russia, Ukraine and the European Commission same as the agreement reached the previous two winters.

    The vice-president added that he hoped to discuss transit issues for the period after 2019.
