    MOSCOW, APRIL 5, 2004. (RIA NOVOSTI). Russian deputy foreign minister Viktor Kalyuzhny believes that the reason for the connection of Kazakhstan to the Baku-Ceyhan pipeline is the rigid tariff policy of Russia, he said at a press conference in RIA Novosti on Monday.

    "We should be more flexible in the issues of the tariff policy. This will make Russia attractive for the transit of energy products through its territory," Kalyuzhny pointed out.

    According to him, the Russian northern route Baku-Novorossiisk can ensure the transportation of all the oil produced in the Caspian region. In particular, Kalyuzhny is of the opinion that the Russian Transneft company may be in charge of transporting the energy products.

    "It has a great backlash of possibilities for this," he said.
