The prime minister of Kazakhstan Bakytzhan Sagintayev said that the country might soon lose the Russian coal market.
“We have long been witnessing that Russia has been decreasing coal purchases. And the technologies are developing fast. Soon we might lose the market that we have today. We need to think of some other ways”, he said.
“As to deliveries to Europe, here the issue is with access to Russian seaports. We have to prepare a base, so that our Russian counterparts could prepare all the necessary documents”, Sagintayev added. (Ukrainian metal)
