ST PETERSBURG Russia, June 19 (Reuters) - Russia's Gazprom (GAZP.MM: Quote) has a "very good chance" that the gas dispute with Belarus will be resolved, Gazprom export chief Alexander Medvedev told Reuters on Saturday.
"There is a very good chance that all will be well," Medvedev said on the sidelines of the St Petersburg Economic Forum.
Russia has said it will cut 85 percent of gas supplies to Belarus from Monday if its ex-Soviet neighbour fails to pay $192 million in debt to Gazprom, which Minsk denied it owes. [ID:nLDE65H0DE]
