Energy Charter and Transit Protocol not signed

The deputy of the Russian Minister of foreign affairs has said today that the basic principles of energy cooperation between Russia and the EU countries can be included into the main part of the future agreement on strategic partnership. According to his opinion, at the moment the EU 30% depends on Russian supplies in the energy sphere, but this dependence is likely to reach 70% by 2030, as experts say. This is why the European Union wants to get guarantees of the future energy supplies, including those from Russia.
      However, the deputy of the Russian Minister of foreign affairs also adds that its wrong to confine the problem to gas and oil trade only. It is also important to arrange nuclear materials trade too. We want this sphere to be based on the principles of equality.
