MOSCOW Oct 15 (Reuters) - Russia is ready to lift export duties on all oil supplied to Belarus after the countries sign all the documents related to a creation of a common economic area, Prime Minister Vladimir Putin said on Friday.
"After the signing and ratification of all documents related to creation of the common economic area Russia will agreed to lift all export duties on crude oil (supplied to Belarus)," Putin told a news conference.
Russia plans to create a common economic area with Belarus and Kazakhstan in 2012. Russia currently only supplies duty free oil for Belarus domestic consumption. (Writing by Gleb Bryanski, editing by Guy Faulconbridge)
