Putin’s September China visit good opportunity to sign gas deal- Kremlin spokesman

The deal to send gas to China via the western route may be ready by September

If Moscow and Beijing decide to sign an agreement on shipments of Russian natural gas to China via the western route, Russian President Vladimir Putin's visit to China in September would be a good opportunity for signing the document, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.

"If it's ready, the visit will certainly be a good opportunity for concluding this transaction," Peskov told journalists in commenting on Energy Minister Alexander Novak's statement that the ministry expected an agreement with China on sending gas via the western route would be concluded during negotiations between the two leaders in September.
