"The Belarus side is fully prepared to sign this agreement," the source said.
According to him, the contract provides for the price of natural gas to be $47 per thousand cubic meters of natural gas.
This is approximately the same price Trans Nafta charges to deliver gas to Belarus ($46.68 per thousand cubic meters).
"Gazprom is ready to sign an agreement with Beltransgaz on its own terms, which the Belarus side was informed of earlier," a source at Gazprom told RIA Novosti. According to him, the price of the natural gas deliveries must be linked with the price of transporting Russian natural gas through Belarus.
