Russia and U.S. Energy Ministers To Hold Talks in Moscow

Sept. 10 (EIRNS)—Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak and U.S. Energy Secretary Rick Perry will hold talks on Sept. 13 in Moscow according to TASS. The two will discuss the resumption of an energy dialogue, introduction of new U.S. sanctions against Iran, construction of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline, and development of oil and gas markets, Novak told reporters today.

“The topics of the meeting, first of all, include cooperation in the field of energy, energy efficiency, in general restoration of relations in the field of energy dialogue. I think that we will talk about the situation in the oil market, in the gas market, because today the U.S. represents one of the largest countries in oil and gas production, and they are exporters. At the last meeting we discussed the consequences [from introducing new sanctions against Iran] that could affect the market. I think we will surely touch upon this topic, because it has a very strong influence on today’s market expectations,” Novak said, adding that construction of infrastructure, including Nord Stream 2, will also be discussed.
