Turkmenistan offered Ukraine to buy gas at $100 for 1000 cu m and to solve the transt question with Russia, press office of Turkmenistan Foreign Ministry reported.

During the negotiations between the Ukrainian delegation and Turkmenistan Ministry on oil and gas industry the Ukrainian party admitted the debt in the amount of 64 mln USD and assured Turkmenistan of the repayment in September.

The sides also discussed the supply of Turkmenistan gas to Ukraine. They agreed that the contract of December 2005 on supplies of natural gas from Turkmenistan to Ukraine in 2006 had lost validity and become obsolete. The Turkmenistan party proposed to make a new contract on supplies of Turkmenistan gas to Ukraine in the forth quarter of 2006 at the price of $100 for 1000 cu m.

The Ukrainian side was also offered to obtain a license for gas transit through the territory of Russia. Turkmenistan noted that it is ready to consider the issue of gas supplies to Ukraine in 2007, if the Ukrainian party obtains the transit license and makes corresponding agreement on supplies’ quota.

The Ukrainian delegation agreed with Turkmenistan’s arguments and left for Kyiv to have consultation with the government on gas price and other terms of supplies.

The negotiations will be continued later.
