Putin of Russia and Tokayev of Kazakhstan discussed cooperation in the field of energy – Kremlin
MOSCOW, January 3 (Reuters). – Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Kazakh counterpart Kassym-Jomart Tokayev talked by phone and discussed issues of energy cooperation, the Kremlin said on Tuesday.
Kazakhstan, the world’s largest landlocked country, has been using Russian infrastructure to export its oil at a time when Western countries have capped prices and banned the purchase of Russian oil by sea because of its actions in Ukraine.
The Russian government approved it last week 10 year extension Agreement with Kazakhstan on the transit of up to 10 million tons of oil per year to China.
At the same time, Kazakhstan is trying to increase the supply of oil to Germany through Russia Friendship pipeline exempt from fines.
The Kremlin did not provide details about the phone call.
