Gazprom hopes for New Year without problems with close partners

VOSKRESENSK. Oct 23 (Interfax) - Hopefully, Gazprom will meet the New Year without any problems with its partners, said company chief Alexei Miller.

"Certainly, I hope that we will be celebrating the New Year at home," said Miller, when asked the relations with which CIS partner are likely to complicate the New Year holiday.

"We have every reason for this: contracts with our partners have been signed. They are valid, and our partners are certainly expected to abide by the contracts this coming winter," Miller said.
