Moscow, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 13th Oct, 2021 ) :Russia's energy minister said Wednesday new contracts would need to be agreed for increases in natural gas deliveries to Europe, which is struggling with a surge in prices.
"If there are requests, that will only be via the establishment of new contractual obligations," Nikolai Shulginov said, describing Russia as a "reliable supplier".
They argue that Moscow is intentionally not boosting supplies to put pressure on Europe, to push for more long-term contracts and for the certification of the controversial Nord Stream 2 natural gas pipeline.
Russian officials have repeatedly said that suppliers are fulfilling their obligations under its contracts with European buyers.
