Energy and coal industry minister of Ukraine Eduard Stavytsky hopes that the Ukrainian Parliament will enact legislation, which will allow reforming the Ukrainian gas transportation system.

"I am convinced that the MPs, who really worry about the future of our country and especially about energy security, will very carefully study the bill and take an informed decision that will allow us to defend the public interest," he told a news conference after talks in Brussels on the development of the gas market of Ukraine, ForUm correspondent reports.

The minister noted that the bill, registered in the Parliament, will still undergo a series of discussions, including in the parliamentary committees. "This bill will be discussed in the committees of Parliament, then there will be the first reading, and I'm sure our dear friends from the opposition will put questions to me as minister and the professionals, who were involved in its development," he said.

Stavytsky assured that after the approval of the law, the Government will decide on the transparent reform of the Ukrainian gas transport system.

Replying to a question whether Ukraine will get subsequently bilateral or trilateral gas consortium, the minister said: "We hold not only bilateral, but trilateral and quadrilateral talks. The law will allow all interested companies and investors to participate in the negotiations. As for the possibility of some kind of fraud, the government stands on the fact that all the procedures have to be as transparent as possible. This applies to both privatization and other issues, addressed by the Cabinet. "
