ST. PETERSBURG, June 19 (Itar-Tass) -- Russia does not rule out that the issue of Belarus' gas debts will be settled in court, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Igor Sechin told journalists on Saturday in the sidelines of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum.
"We will see in court who owes whom," he said commenting on Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko's allegations that Russia owes Belarus for gas transit.
According to Sechin, "the issue requires an unbiased consideration." In his words, Gazprom's moves in respect of Belarus were justified. "Belarus unilaterally set the gas price for itself," he said.
